Filming of Byron Baes begins with no indigenous consultation

Filming of the Netflix series Byron Baes has reportedly commenced without any effort made by the show's production company – Eureka Productions – to consult with local indigenous groups or the local Council.

TEDxByronBay 2013 has just been announced and organisers are calling for outstanding speakers to apply for next year’s talkfest, under the theme ‘Agents For Change’.

TEDx is a program of local, self-organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. The x indicates it is an independently organised TED event. The events are podcast via iTunes and shared on YouTube.

Griffith University environmental scientist and Byron Bay local, Marcello Sano, says he was inspired to bring an independent TEDx event to Byron Bay to channel the energy and bright minds of the local community to a global audience.

‘At TEDxByronBay we are working hard to engage speakers from a range of ideas, skills and disciplines, following examples of the most successful TEDx events around the world, adding a Byron Bay flavour to it,’ Marcello says.

Invitations have been sent out to a selection of local and international speakers, with places reserved to showcase Byron Shire’s undiscovered talent for the April 20, 2013 event to be held at the Byron Bay Community Centre.

Applications are due November 30 and should include an abstract of the talk, a speaker bio and a recording.

The Echo [Echonetdaily ?] is the official media partner of the event and TEDxByronBay is seeking other partners to help bring this local event to the world-class standard of TED.com.

For more on how to apply to speak at TEDxByronBay or to partner with this event, go to: http://tedxbyronbay.com or contact [email protected].
