TEDxYouth@Paparangi focuses on the theme

"Through My Eyes" for our 2022 inaugural event

About this event

This year, TEDxYouth@Paparangi aspires to answer this question. Our event theme of ‘Through My Eyes’ asks young people across Wellington what the world looks like through the lens they wear. Our theme describes how each speaker chooses to and has seen the society they live in, how their perspective has moulded them into the people they are and the future that they believe in. Join our community of people making change in their small worlds as we explore ideas around character, opportunity, taking action and so much more.

The event will take place at Newlands College Hall (68 Bracken Road), on June 1st 2022, from 5:30pm to 9:00pm. On the night you'll hear from eight speakers who have been working tirelessly to craft impactful speeches. The event also includes other live performances like the jazz band and cultural groups, catering (small nibbles) and the opportunity to interact with booths, where you will be prompted to interact with and share your ideas. Are you ready?

Tickets are available ONLINE ONLY at $15 per person. This is to cover the cost of running the event as TEDxYouth@Paparangi is a non-profit organisation.

What is TEDx?

About TEDx

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxYouth@Paparangi, where x = independently organised TED event. At our TEDxYouth@Paparangi, live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. Learn more here

About TEDxYouth@Paparangi

As an event, TEDxYouth@Paparangi is a TEDxYouth event built by and made for youth in the Wellington Region. Over the many months of planning our event committee has done and the time spent by our curation committee, we have tried our best to encapsulate the spirit of a TEDx event. To share ideas and perspectives, giving a voice to those who have something they want to say.
