CIVILISATION > DAN BULL

Utilising found footage of Civilisiations game machinima
coupled with the rhythmic cadence of the hip hop cinema
spins a journey from ancient history to celestial destiny
The word Progress echoes in the DNA like a means to an end of everything


POETRY OF THE STREETS > OMAR MUSA @ TEDxSYDNEY

Omar Musa is a Malaysian-Australian rapper and poet from Queanbeyan, Australia. He is the former winner of the Australian Poetry Slam and the Indian Ocean Poetry Slam. He has released three hip hop albums, two poetry books (including “Parang”) and appeared on ABC’s Q&A.

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. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
