TEDxUQ is returning in 2015 for its third annual event and UQ students, staff and alumni are invited to attend. Taking place in the GHD Auditorium at the Advanced Engineering Building (49-200) on Saturday 23 May, we're excited to deliver a program based on the theme 'Rewrite the Rules'. It will be an opportunity for speakers and attendees to explore ideas that are rewriting, reshaping and redefining the path ahead. Learn about our theme, nominate a speaker or watch past TEDxUQ talks.

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 TEDxUQ where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxUQ 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.EXPLORE MORE
