TEDxKāpiti Emerge 2022

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.

Every TEDx event is given a theme, and in 2022 Kāpiti and Horowhenua will be embracing the theme emerge for its event. Emerge means to come to light. To move out or away from something and to become apparent, or even prominent. It means new ideas, invites a distinction from our neighbours in Wellington, and offers focus for the resilience seen in many areas since COVID changed our lives forever. It’s a simple word, a humble word, but it carries so much diversity and timeliness for our communities. And that’s why we’re excited to see how this is embraced and shared across industry, community and culture.

Speaker line-up announced:

There’s something for anyone who’s open to new thinking and new perspectives – the kind of hearty sustenance that makes the world go around. Kāpiti and Horowhenua is set to be well represented by a diverse range of powerful ideas.

  • AJ Crawshaw – on turning shared information into music
  • Monique Davidson – on how leadership isn’t necessarily about age or experience
  • Anthony, Caleb & Brendan Hazel – on how small deeds are complete rubbish
  • Nadine Anne Hura – on the dual crises of climate and mental health
  • Sharlene Maoate-Davis – on why we all have some sacred healing work to do, and how we can do it
  • Jack Penman – on realising it’s the different people who will make a difference in the world – and how we can support them
  • Amy Skipper – on why children should speak when spoken to
  • Tainui Stephens – on perceptions of truth, and how science and art are the foundations of new truths to ensure our survival
  • Philip Sue – on how learning can be anyone’s super power
  • Hohepa Thompson – on what it means to be a risk taker and a provocateur
  • Jared Tuoro – on why we need death in order to have a life
