TEDxAdelaide - Tracey Korsten - A Poem for Us

Tracey Korsten will put her poetic skills to the test at TEDxAdelaide this year as our poet-in-residence. Inspired by the ideas flowing throughout the day, she will compose a poem, and slam TEDxAdelaide to an official close... Tracey Korsten has been writing and performing for many years, working for many arts organisations, including the Bakehouse Theatre, State Theatre Company, La Mama, Adelaide Playback and ImproNow. She took an interest in poetry three years ago. Since then she has served on the board of Friendly Street Poets, co-edited the anthology Sorcerers & Soothsayers. Her work has also been published in After the Race, and performed at many slams. She has a particular interest in improvised performance of all varieties and runs workshops on Theatre of the Oppressed. She currently freelances as an MC, marriage celebrant, speaker and writer. 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)
