Peter Sharp

Dare to be vulnerable

TEDxPerth 2015
November 2015

Talk length:

15.10mins

Ever thought that train rides can be a little weird? That the distance between us is vastly greater than the physical distance between us? What if we liberated our desire for human connection by daring to be vulnerable?

Peter Sharp is a “professional paradigm shifter”. Fiercely optimistic, he designs social experiments and global movements for peace that bend the rules of fear and challenge the modus operandi of community empowerment and flash mobs.

Through his work leading The Liberators International, Peter creates spaces for the public to create their own threads of love, life and joy during the daily experience. One of his projects include the The World’s Biggest Eye Contact experiment which involved 100,000 participants from over 156 cities sharing a minute of eye contact with strangers.
