TED and the City of Perth, with the support of TEDxPerth, invite the public to come together and enjoy the wonder of ideas on the Northbridge Piazza Big Screen for a specially curated program of TED Talks that will be screened each day during the week of June 10 to celebrate TEDGlobal 2013. Audience members will be able to choose which talks hit the screen by using the brand new City of Perth Video Jukebox iPhone app.
In addition to daily program, Northbridge Piazza will host an event on Friday, June 14 from 6pm on the big screen as they bring you up to three TED Talks from the TEDGlobal Stage in Edinburgh. Be prepared to be inspired and enchanted as fascinating speakers from around the world give you an insight into new ways of thinking.
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a conference in California 26 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with many initiatives.
At a TED conference, the world's leading thinkers and doers are asked to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes or less. TED speakers have included Roger Ebert, Sheryl Sandberg, Bill Gates, Elizabeth Gilbert, Benoit Mandelbrot, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Brian Greene, Isabel Allende and former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Three major TED events are held each year: The TED Conference takes place every spring in Vancouver, Canada, simultaneous with TEDActive, in Whistler, BC; and the TEDGlobal Conference takes place each summer in Edinburgh, Scotland.
