We are in amazing times, the likes of which have never seen before with the global environment changing month-to-month, almost day-by-day. 

From bushfires to droughts to pandemics. It has brought out the best in us, highlighted the worst, showcased skills, brought friendships, developed understanding. 

Our takeaway has to be that, within our lives, whether we went through positive or negative, ups or downs we have proven to ourselves beyond a shadow of a doubt that we have the ability to adapt and change to suit the environment, to suit the day, the job, the surroundings.

This is what TEDxMandurah is all about. Morphability, the art and science of Change.

Change ourselves, our environment, our surroundings, our thoughts, and opinions 
because, or in spite of, external forces – does it really matter?

The outcomes may not have been what they originally had in mind, but their journey and their learnings have carved spectacular ideas worth sharing.

TED Talks

Morphability relative to sea life. See how an octopus can change colour, texture, pattern, formation in the space of a split second. Fitting in with surroundings to hide from danger, catch food and attract a partner. Amazing if we could do the same.

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxMandurah, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxMandurah event, TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
