You’re invited to the 2017 TEDxMelbourne Open Mic Night, exploring the theme of Rebels, Revolutionaries & US.


Watch as everyday Melburnians pitch their rebellious and revolutionary ideas in 2-3 minutes for the chance to be on the TEDx stage at our main event in September.


We want to find rebels and revolutionaries that turn the tables and create change. Many times they do not consider themselves as rebels or revolutionary. Yet, they act on what they truly believe in and make their mark on our world. They live true inner passions and desires.


Listen and be inspired by their stories as they light up your own inner rebel to take the chance to make a change. Be a part of the evolution, the prosperity, the peace and the innovation.


We all have the courage inside of us to be daring and audacious.

Are you game enough to take the stage for a 2-3 minute talk?
