When & where is the next TEDxAdelaide Conference?
How do I buy tickets?
Tickets will go on sale roughly 6 weeks out of the event. You will be able to buy tickets through Eventbrite or via a link on our website. Sign up to the mailing list on the website and follow us on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date on ticket sales and other news.
How can I become a speaker?
Call for speakers usually opens up several months before a TEDxAdelaide event. Sign up to the mailing list on the website and follow us on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date on speaker callouts.
How can I volunteer?
You can register your interest to volunteer on our website. We have a huge amount of interest in volunteer positions so we will contact you if we believe you are suitable for a role, and you will receive all communications about available volunteer positions.
Do you get paid to do this?
Everyone involved in TEDxAdelaide is volunteering their time, skills and expertise – this includes speakers, event organisers and event personnel.
I have an idea for TEDxAdelaide. Who do I contact?
If you believe you have an amazing idea for TEDxAdelaide events and the community, and it hasn’t been covered in this FAQ, send an email through to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us on Facebook.
I want to run a TEDx Event. How can I do that?
You may qualify to run a TEDxAdelaide Salon. Salon events are often small weekly or monthly events that keep a TEDx community engaged between regular TEDx events. It’s a unique kind of gathering that TEDx organisers hold which allows the conversation to continue, in person. You will need to supply the venue, speakers, manage ticket sales and event personnel. Email email@example.com or contact us on Facebook.
What is TED?
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages.
What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxAdelaide, where x = independently organised TED event. At our TEDxAdelaide event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
How else can I get involved?
We are looking for corporate partners to sponsor us financially and with goods in kind. If you or a business/organisation you represent are interested in partnering with TEDxAdelaide, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
