yesterday I had the pleasure of supporting local school people presenting a range of views, telling it like it is.  One of the most satisfying aspects of working in a cultural palace are the, all to rare, opportunities to deliver a platform upon which the brilliance of youth can shine out. From the serious, to the sublime, to the silly, it was a thought provoking day. The full details of speakers and topics covered are here

From a museum pov, I particularly enjoyed Joanna Egan telling us why Luna Park is an embarrassing national icon that should be converted into a science fair – although her vision of an improved Luna Park sounded like a a vision for an improved powerhouse museum to me.
Next week we post-produce the videos and publish them to the TED YouTube site.
Next year, the hopes for tedxyouthsydney 2011 are an event for youth, by youth, produced by youth, should be even better.
