About this event

The theme of TEDxChristchurch 2013, Curiouser and Curiouser, has multiple meanings. The phrase was originally used by Lewis Carroll in Alice in Wonderland to mean "exceedingly strange." But we used it as a challenge to our audience, to grow ever more curious about the world around us. We encouraged everyone to BE curiouser, to allow themselves to be filled with childlike wonder and to fearlessly contemplate the possibilities of our collective future.
