Time Out (Melbourne) - - Things to Do -

READY TO BE in­spired? Global lec­ture se­ries TEDX is back in Mel­bourne and its 2017 event ‘Rebels, Rev­o­lu­tion­ar­ies and Us’ prom­ises to be the fes­ti­val’s most dar­ing and am­bi­tious event to date.

For its eighth year, Tedxmel­bourne will be fo­cus­ing on those who’ve em­braced con­tro­versy, taken the path less trav­elled and chal­lenged them­selves and oth­ers to speak up. The first round of speak­ers fea­tures for­mer child sol­dier turned de­fence lawyer Deng Adut, busi­ness­woman and phi­lan­thropist Su­san Al­berti, de­signer and dig­i­tal crafts­man Mond Qu and CEO and founder of Ozhar­vest Ronni Khan. More speak­ers will be an­nounced soon.

Fol­low­ing the suc­cess of last year’s sell­out event, Tedxmel­bourne has ex­panded in size to sup­port de­mand. Tick­ets for the day-long event are cur­rently on sale. Re­becca Russo
