Get Involved


Run entirely by a team of passionate volunteers, including both undergraduate and postgraduate students, TEDxUQ is an annual independently organised TEDx event showcasing exceptional speakers from the UQ and wider Brisbane communities. Volunteering with TEDxUQ is a great opportunity to meet incredible people and contribute to a renowned event in the UQ community.

As a Core Crew, you’ll have the opportunity to dive deep into the TEDx experience with a long-term commitment and shape the event from start to finish.

Alternatively, if you prefer a shorter commitment, become an Event Day Volunteer and contribute your skills on the day of the event. Join us on this incredible journey to harness the power of ideas and create transformative experiences.


Core Crew

The TEDxUQ Core Crew consists of the following teams: Curation, Marketing & Communications, Operations, Partnerships & Finance, Graphic Design, Website Development, Production, as well as a Performance Curator, Secretary, an MC, and Volunteer Coordinators.

Due to the high volume of applications received, we encourage applicants to provide thorough and carefully considered responses in your application.

After completing your application form, it will be reviewed by our team. Successful applicants will be invited to attend an interview in late November, after the exam period has finished. 


Event Day Volunteer

TEDxUQ Event Day Volunteers provide invaluable assistance to our Core Crew on Event Day. Our Event Day Volunteers are there to engage with the attendees and help ensure they have the best possible experience. This is an opportunity to be involved in the action and can act as a stepping stone to a year-round role with the Core Crew. To know more about available positions, visit here.
