About this event

TEDxTheRocks hosted our second community event at the CATC Design School (www.catc.edu.au) on Saturday 7th December!

Attendees spent an inspirational afternoon with us, as we watched the TEDWomen 2013 Conference (http://conferences.ted.com/TEDWomen2013/) live stream. In San Francisco for the first time, TEDWomen 2013 channelled the bootstrap spirit of Silicon Valley to celebrate invention in all its forms. Not just technology and things, but also solutions to poverty; approaches to peacemaking; expressions of art, and, at times, our own lives.

Some of the questions asked at the conference included: How does geography impact innovation? How do new technologies shape our lives? How do great ideas take flight? How can meaningful change be imagined, fostered, and scaled? Most importantly how are women and girls reshaping the future? From the developing world, where a small loan to a young woman can transform a village, to the West, where generations of educated women are transforming entire industries, women are change agents, inventors, idea champions.
