Ideas worth spreading

About us

TEDxUniSA club host an annual event called TEDxUniSA. TED brings together the world’s world-leading thinkers and activists to share ideas that matter across many disciplines- technology, entertainment, design, science, humanities, business, development. TEDx events host speakers and TED Talk videos combine to spark deep discussion and connections. And in the spirit of “ideas worth spreading,” TED created TEDx, a program of local, self-organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our events are entirely organised by local, Adelaide-based UniSA students.

To prepare for the event, the TEDxUniSA committee has to set up a seven-month timeline outlining nine major aspects for the event: team management, venue, finance and sponsorship, theme and speakers, running order, marketing, audience, photo and video, and post-event survey. The task timeline for all of these aspects is divided into three stages: before (the first five months), during (one month to the event, including the day of the event) and after the event (one month after the event). At the moment, the major action points are to recruit core team members, find and contact sponsors, find a venue, confirm a theme for the event and contact appropriate university staff for marketing and website support. After these relationships have been forged and interest piqued, the curator teams can then start searching and inviting relevant speakers for the event, and the designing team and marketing team can start designing the venue context, website and social media channel.

Now, that you've read and know a little bit more about us, are you interested in joining our movement and share your ideas with the world?
