TedXMelbourne has announced its first round of speakers

Shella Shpigel

TEDxMelbourne returns in 2018 to once again generate conversations about things that matter and inspire new ideas for the future. The theme for this year is 'the Great Unknown', with themes surrounding who we’ve been and what we’ll become.

The line-up will feature local scientists and academics including astrophysicist, author and TV presenter Dr Lisa Harvey-Smith, archaeologist and lecturer Dr Ronika Power, science writer, researcher and educator Lynne Kelly, as well as public speaking coach, spoken word artist and author Fleassy Malay.

The speakers will discuss a variety of meaningful questions, like is it true that if you know your history, then you know your future? Or what does it mean to connect and belong in a world that keeps changing the rules?

The format for this year's event offers attendees flexibility by providing them with the opportunity to choose morning, afternoon or full day sessions. The venue has also changed for 2018 and is a more intimate and inclusive environment, at the Meat Market in North Melbourne. 

TedxMelbourne will take you on a thought-provoking journey on Monday August 13. For more information and to book tickets, head here
