TEDxUQ 2024



Celebrating 10 years of TEDxUQ

TEDxUQ turns 10 this year. Established by a third-year UQ student in 2013, the event has evolved from a 100-person affair to selling out 500 tickets in recent years. To celebrate this milestone, Contact Magazine caught up with some of the UQ community members who have been part of TEDxUQ over the years.

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.
