TEDxPerth 2018

 TEDxPerth returned to Perth Concert Hall on Saturday 3 November for an amazing day of original ideas from some of WA’s brightest minds. Unveiling big ideas with potential to change the world, to small ideas that could change your life, this year’s event saw members of the global TEDx community come together for a day packed with powerful talks, live performances, short films (new to the program this year), live speaker Q&As and much more.
