TEDxChristchurch 2018 - Livestream

12/10/18

We recently partnered up with TEDxChristchurch for "The Campfire" - TEDxChristchurch 2018. The 11-hour event (for the crew at least) was a day packed with inspiration, reflection and motivation. 

Our crew arrived on-site at 8 am, beginning pack-in for our 5 camera live stream. By 11 am we were show ready with stream test and the last minute panic of go-live upon us. 1 pm brought the arrival of more than three-hundred locals to the Philip CArter Family Concert Hall at The Piano, all eager to be inspired and left in awe. 

Speakers included:

  • Zach Preston, Engineering Student from the University of Canterbury and founder of Sentinel Water
  • Professor Maggie-Lee Huckabee, Department of Communication Disorders from the University of Canterbury
  • Professors Anthony and Phil Butler, Radiologists from the Canterbury District Health Board
  • Kathryn Leafe, Executive Director at the NZ Needle Exchange Programme
  • Professor Alex Tan, Head of Department of Political Science from the University of Canterbury
  • Daisy Lavea-Timo, Poet, Rugby league prop and producer
  • Laura O'Connell Rapira (Te Ātiawa, Ngāpuhi, Te Rarawa, Ngāti Whakaue), Director of ActionStation
  • Hamish Brewer, "the relentless, tattooed, skateboarding Kiwi Principal in Northern Virginia"

A personal highlight for our team was the TED talk from world champion freediver William Trubridge, who demonstrated his breathing techniques for preparation before the dive.
