“It was one of the best organised and value for money events I’ve ever attended. The speakers were amazing and provoking. I would have no hesitation in recommending TEDx Brisbane to everyone I ever meet.”
TEDxBrisbane 2018 – What’s Next
Sunday 9th December
TEDxBrisbane events are like nothing you have ever experienced.
TEDxBrisbane is the premier ideas platform in our city where inspiring, compelling and game-changing ideas collide with the thinkers, doers and changemakers of Brisbane. People like you who are looking to make a positive difference in the world, whether it is on a large or small scale.
Our mission is to connect ideas worth spreading with a truly connected and engaged community to engineer impact in our city, our country and the world.
We hand-pick our audience to ensure it is filled with people looking to make a difference. People who are eager to rise to the challenge of new ideas, prepared to have their misconceptions questioned and capable of turning inspiration and information into action. Some of them may have great ideas of their own. Others are passionate about supporting the great ideas of others and have the drive, knowledge and skills to help make it happen.
If you are crazy enough to think you can make a difference in the world, and committed to doing something about it we encourage you to apply.

TEDxBrisbane is back. On Sunday 9th December the thinkers, doers and changemakers of Brisbane will gather at the brand new Howard Smith Wharves Precinct to immerse themselves in a day-long festival of ideas.The event includes a full day of TEDx Talks, sharing powerful, disruptive and inspiring ideas from some of Brisbane and Australia’s most visionary and original thinkers, as well as live performances from local musicians.
We curate every detail of the event, ranging from every idea presented on the stage through to the foodie-curated full day catering. We hand-pick the audience, bringing together a community of bright minds, experts and business leaders, community champions and visionaries who can skip the small talk, and dive into conversations about ideas and solutions that matter.
If you have a passion for ideas and putting them into action to create a positive impact, we encourage you to apply. Audience applications are now open.
Individuals looking to attend must complete an application as we assess each submission on an individual basis. A significant number of our audience members come solo, but leave having found a new tribe. This includes many self-identifying introverts.
Details of speakers and performers will be announced in the lead up to event day, but not before applications close. Part of the TEDxBrisbane experience is being surprised by new and compelling ideas from speakers whose names you may not know. Successful applicants will be provided with a code that allows them to purchase their ticket to attend.
The Standard All-Day Ticket costs $175, which includes the full day TEDxBrisbane program, the full day of catering, a TEDxBrisbane t-shirt & bag and the 2-hour catered After Party. Successful applicants also have the opportunity to help us Pay It Forward, by opting to purchase one of our Pay It Forward tickets, which include the standard ticket plus a 20% or 100% sponsorship of a scholarship ticket for people who would be otherwise unable to attend.
Applications for scholarships are limited to individuals who hold a Pensioner Concession Card, Seniors Card, and Student Cards (full-time students only). The number of scholarships we offer is directly impacted by the Pay It Forward contributions we receive, and we are very grateful for the support we receive for this endeavour.
In response to demand, we are excited to announce that this year’s event will be 16+, allowing 16 and 17-year-olds to attend. Attendees aged 16 and 17 must be accompanied by an adult aged 18 years or over who has also successfully applied to participate in the event, and both must have purchased tickets.
