Be inspired when a line-up of creative thinkers hits the stage for Melbourne’s own TEDx

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, and Professor Lea Waters, who is a psychologist, researcher, consultant and author.

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.
