State Theatre Centre of WA
Heath Ledger Theatre

Five masters of the human brain spoke for a sold out evening of big ideas, deep thoughts and downright amazement.

We explored the human brain with five experts of the human mind. Neuroscientists, machine learning scientists – even a world-class magician! – each with a fascinating perspective on the organ we rely on the most and understand the least.

500 like-minded TED enthusiasts came together to experience the weird and wonderful world of thought. Our most thought-provoking Salon yet!

Each ticket included …

  • Program booklet
  • Personalised lanyard
  • Carbon offset for travel to and from the event
  • GST and booking fees

This event was carbon neutral.
