Special Event

TEDxYouth@Sydney 2013
– at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia

Following the legacy of TEDxSydney 2013 which saw eight million online views and a sold out live event at Sydney Opera House, the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia and the TEDxSydney team have collaborated to develop TEDxYouth@Sydney, an event specifically aimed at celebrating the creativity, innovation and connectedness of young people.

Presented in the MCA’s premier harbourside venues on Sunday 17 November, the event will provide an inspiring environment for young creators, thinkers and social entrepreneurs to share and be inspired by ideas worth spreading.

Developed with a curatorial team aged 18–24, TEDxYouth@Sydney embraces the global TEDYouthDay theme ‘the spark’, bringing together 12 speakers and performers who will present empowering stories of how they have pursued their creative ideas and created positive impact in their communities.

Speakers include investigative journalist and Walkley Award Finalist Paul Farrell, Co-Founder of Wear It Purple and GLBTIQ activist Katherine Hudson, Melanie Tran, the first person with spinal muscular atrophy to complete the Duke of Edinburgh Award.

On the day, audiences will be engaged with break out activities hosted by The
Loop and the University of Sydney. The ideas of audience members will be profiled throughout the day, providing opportunities for as many young people as possible to contribute.

Places for audience members at the live event are limited.

STAY IN THE LOOP with speaker announcements and news at

For those wanting to experience the event, across the country and the world, it live-streamed via from 10.00am-5.00pm.

TEDxYouth@Sydney is presented by the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia. It is a TEDxSydney event, shared with you by Principal Partner, the University of Sydney.
