[TEST]: TEDxStKilda 2016


Unraveling Humanity: Passion, Fear and Failure

When the heart is willing and the passion is there, is it enough to guarantee success? Does fear hold us back or spur us onwards? Is failure always defeat? This is a forum for the untold stories, the ones that didn’t end as expected…

Throughout the ages, throughout generations, there is a common strand which connects us all. Across the world we are wildly different people; we have different jobs, different beliefs, different friends, different struggles. And yet, we are all inextricably linked. Our base humanity is traced along the same lines. For each of us, a thread tugs within, pulling us along our path in life. Passion. Fear. Failure. These are the ties that bind us.

About TEDxStKilda
TEDxStKilda is our very own locally organised TED-style event, planned and coordinated independently, on a community basis. In recent years, TED talks have attracted huge audiences with entertaining, engaging and educational presentations on a wide range of topics. TEDxStKilda creates an opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level. TEDxs are open source, local and community-driven events that inspire innovation, thought leadership and visionary insight.

St Kilda is home to a mixed demographic; it heralds some of Australia’s best academics, artists, business leaders, activists, experts and community leaders and yet is also home to some of the more disadvantaged members of our society. Our goal is to bring people together to share ideas, to inspire and inform, to create opportunities for discussing some of the most simple and most complex issues facing our community and society today. We want to foster a community of decision makers, solution designers, and people in the frontline of their industries, as well anyone else who is curious and open to learning. We are committed to creating events where participants, speakers and attendees are challenged to communicate their passions in an exciting and engaging dialogue. We are an organisation staffed entirely by volunteers, all of us a driven by an enthusiasm and belief in TED and its ethos ‘ideas worth spreading’.
