TEDxNewy 2011, ‘Shock of the New’, will feature a selection of Newcastle and the Hunter Valley’s leading visionaries and storytellers showcasing their Ideas Worth Spreading.
The free but invitation-only one-day event will be held in Newcastle on 12 November 2011, with an exact venue to be confirmed. A small group of change-makers, innovators, thinkers, creative souls, cultural leaders and social pioneers will witness a back-to-back schedule of talks and performances. An application process to be selected as part of the audience will be launched online in September 2011.
Anyone can take part as an audience to view the live simulcast at the TEDxNewy Forum at a location in Newcastle (TBC) or you can watch remotely via webstream. Thoughts on the ideas and themes that develop throughout the day will be documented in real time via aggregated social media commentary online.
