HistoryEdit

TEDxAuckland was founded as an independent TEDx event by producer Elliott Blade.[2]

The fourth edition was held in August 2013, with speakers scheduled such as local cook Robert Oliver. Blade continued to organize, stating the previous event in 2012 had been sold out.[5] The August 2013 version featured performances by artists such as Samoan hip-hop artist King Kapisi, poet Grace Taylor, singer-songwriters Joseph and Maia, and the New Zealand String Quartet.[6]

In May 2016, TEDxAuckland hosted 28 speakers at the Shed 10 venue on the waterfront in Auckland.[4]
