Coming soon,TEDxHobart 2024

Ideas which can reach the world

The TEDxHobart committee is proud to bring you an event that will provide value, education, entertainment and insights to the audience and community.

The first TEDxHobart was held in January 2014. The world has changed significantly since that time. With the advancement of technology, world events that have rocked our society, and a global pandemic to shake our foundations, our society had grown and changed in unbelievable ways. TEDx returned to Hobart in February 2022 and we hope it can continue as an annual tradition.

TEDxHobart is a not-for-profit event, reliant on the support of our partners. We are excited to present our full-day conference for our community. Our flagship TEDxHobart conference will present speakers, performances and other art for our audience to enjoy.

We believe in the power of ideas and storytelling. The Hobart / nipaluna community is full of people with incredible ideas, amazing experiences and powerful stories. We believe in celebrating the power of ideas and TEDxHobart will provide the premier platform for Hobart’s greatest thinkers and doers to reach a large, influential, local community and then be available online.

Our Mission

“To bring thought provoking, entertaining, innovative and powerful ideas to the stage. We want to hear from those who have been busy doing incredible things within our community, making a real impact in the world.”

About TED

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world's leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.

The annual TED Conference takes place each spring in Vancouver, British Columbia. TED's media initiatives include TED.com, where new TED Talks are posted daily; TED Translators, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed. TED has established The Audacious Project that takes a collaborative approach to funding ideas with the potential to create change at thrilling scale; TEDx, which supports individuals or groups in hosting local, self organized TED-style events around the world, and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.

About TEDX

x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations).
