The TEDxJCUCairns event is very close and we thought it was time to introduce the hard-working student team of 2016! These six students are from James Cook University, in Cairns, and are all in their 3rd year of study. Some will be graduating the Bachelor of Creative Industries early next year. The group of students have participated in this year’s event as part of the Collaborative Project subject within their degree, and have been involved in the development of the website, the T-Shirt design, the booklet design, photography & filming, as well as other major roles. We asked each of the students about their experience working on the TEDxJCUCairns Student Team, and here’s what they said:

ELIZABETH WOOLLEY

“As this has been the second year contributing to this event, I believe their has been a greater understanding of what makes this event successful and powerful to an audience. Each person involved has created a great opportunity for students. I have enjoyed working on this world-renown project.”

“I am a 3rd Creative Industries student majoring in Photo Media. I chose to be part of the TEDxJCUCairns team this year so I could gain valuable experience in learning what is involved in relation to camera operations in an event like TEDxJCUCairns.”

JESSICA STRANG

“For this year’s TEDx event, I have been primarily involved with creating the booklet which is given to attendees and those involved in the event. It contains the day’s schedule, information about each speaker as well as messages from the organising team and information about the sponsors of the event. I was also involved with developping the branding for this year’s event. The experience I have had with TEDxJCUCairns has been valuable and I am also greatful to the other team members for their support and also our mentors for their advice and guidance throughout the process of preparing for this year’s TEDxJCUCairns event.”

BRANDON PINEDA
