After a sold-out success in June last year, TEDxByronBay is bringing a new annual event to the Shire – TEDxByronBayWOMEN on Sunday October 23, from 1 till 6pm at the Byron Theatre.
According to co-organiser Kate Walsh, TEDxByronBayWOMEN is about the power of women and girls to be creators and change-makers.
‘This year, we have ten incredible women, and some amazing performers, telling stories from the frontline of a terrorist attack, the heartache (and celebration) of divorce, the story of boobs, the joys of having a disability, the complex issues around First Nations food and so much more’.
Speakers include Alexx Stuart, Jacqui Lewis, Nikki Parkinson, Jessica Maguire, Alexandra Hudson, Claire O’Rourke, Imogen Kelly and Hanabeth Luke. More will be announced, Walsh says.
There will be performances by Margaret Curtis, Sprung!! Theatre, Imogen Kelly and the O’Lucas, and an exhibition by Ash Studios, Byron Bay.
Food and drink will be provided by Baker and Daughters, Husk Distillery, Two Birds Brewing, Pyewackets Shrubs, Auysa Tea, and Chailalai chai, with more to be announced.
