TEDxBrisbane Attendee FAQs
How can I attend TEDxBrisbane?
We hand pick our audience via a public application process, so to attend a TEDxBrisbane event you will need to apply.
We believe who we invite to participate in the audience is as important as who we ask to speak on stage: because our participants are the ones who will take our “ideas worth spreading” into the world.
The TEDxBrisbane audience is a remarkable group of people. They are open-minded, curious, intelligent and looking to make a difference.
How can I apply to speak at TEDxBrisbane in the future?
TEDxBrisbane operates an invitation-only curatorial model. We receive a lot of questions about applying to speak so we wrote a blog post to provide more information.
How can I apply to be a volunteer?
The majority of our volunteers are involved in our TEDxBrisbane Advocate program. You can find out more about it here. There are some exceptions, including for specialist, skills-based roles where we seek out people with demonstrated knowledge, skills and impact in that field. If you are interested in volunteering in the future the best first step is to apply for a seat in the audience as a way to join the community.
What is the link between TEDxBrisbane and TEDxSouthBank?
In 2017 the Team from TEDxSouthBank were invited by TED HQ to change their name to the city-wide TEDxBrisbane. We are very excited to embrace the city-wide name, reflecting our mission to showcase Brisbane’s best ideas to the world, to bring the world’s best ideas to Brisbane, and to nurture and support a highly-engaged community within our city.
