About this event

Each month up to 100 young people from across Perth attend to watch inspiring talks from by the world’s most fascinating thinkers and doers, as well as live, home-grown speakers with world-changing ideas to share.

Confirmed Speakers

  • Paul Stone
    Paul runs a technology support business located in Perth, WA. He is interested pushing the boundaries and exploring the possibilities of what can be done with art, creativity and technology to make the world > a better place. Paul has a deep interest in how things work, how things interact and becoming involved in that interaction in a positive way; from computers, to music, to marketing, to relationships between two or more people, to relationships between people and technology.
  • Jakub Dammer
    Born in Slovakia, Jakub moved to Australia with his parents when he was 3. One night in 2001, he stayed up past his bedtime and giggled away to the lyrics of Eminem's 'The Real Slim Shady'. This was the first step in what would turn out to be a very long engagement with the genre of hip hop. His interest in spoken word poetry came as an offshoot of this. Early 2011, he entered his first poetry slam in Perth. Recently, he came second in the WA State Poetry Slam Final and will be competing in the National Poetry Slam Final in Sydney on the 27th of November. His poem, 'Darwinian Revolution', re-interprets 'revolution' as something that can be apolitical, personal and used as a means of self-discovery.
