The City of Casey will host its first TEDx forum in April.
Inspired by the theme of community empowerment, represented by a ‘Two Hands’ image, presenters will offer their unique tales of success (or failure) or trend-setting ideas poised to affect real, positive change.
City of Casey Mayor Cr Amanda Stapledon welcomed the inaugural event.
“This will be the first TEDx event to be held at our magnificent Bunjil Place, and we’re absolutely thrilled,“ Cr Stapledon said.
“Council is working hard to empower our community through numerous exciting initiatives, and we’re thrilled to be able to help showcase those who are working towards that same goal.“
TEDxCasey 2019 will be held over three sessions, one in the afternoon with a focus on youth, and two in the evening.
TEDx is a program of local, self-organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark discussion and connection.
These local, self-organised events are branded TEDx, where x equals independently organized TED event
