News about TEDxCanberra for 2015, and our future events.
Producing a conference of the quality of TEDxCanberra for five years and eight events on the volunteer labor of a dedicated, small group of people is something we're extremely proud of.

Khadija Gbla is trying not to think about the fact she and her son, due in February, could die during labour due to medical ignorance about complications from female genital mutilation
