TEDx Sydney live O fountain activation

TEDx 2019, Sydney

About the Project

Showcasing ‘Legacy’ Through A Live Art Activation.

The O initiative was invited to showcase the O fountain at TEDx Sydney 2019, an event of over 500,000 people. As part of this experience the O initiative:

  • Animated the ‘Hub’ with artist Jeff McCann painting a design reflective of the theme of the conference, ‘Legacy’
  • Showcased how Art can enhance public space and raise awareness of sustainability
  • Highlighted how infrastructure (public drinking fountains) can add social and environmental value to people and place
  • Inspired the community around an ‘idea worth sharing’ – making public drinking fountains an inviting experience
HUB | TEDxSydney 2019


The live activation could not have been made possible without the financial support of 3M and Haymes Paint.
