Surabaya, where vibrant cultures collide and innovation fuels our mornings!

At TEDxSurabaya, we’re diving into the theme “Kalibrasi” (calibration, in English). It’s the quest for the right balance and alignment among elements such as technology, entertainment, and design, to craft a community that thrives in harmony.

Picture it as a dynamic process of fine-tuning, ensuring these elements seamlessly benefit our community, while embracing diverse perspectives and needs

Join us in unraveling inspiring stories from speakers of all backgrounds, because we truly believe in “Ideas Worth Spreading.” Let’s dream together and build a brighter future!

Our Speakers


Funware Scientist

In this incredibly fast-paced environment, the need for e-learning has increased. E-learning provides convenience for students to access resources, courses, and information from virtually anywhere.

In line with technological developments, technology has fundamentally transformed education which offers opportunities for more accessible, flexible, and personalized learning experiences. One of the innovations is called gamification learning.

We are deep-diving into digital learning with the CEO of Petra Digital Institute and Petraverse, Felix Pasila who also works as a Lecturer in the Electrical Engineering Study Program. He is experienced in training Students/Lecturers to draft Patents. He was also assigned as a Co-Founder of several technology-based Companies (Start-ups).


The Silk Road Harmony

Continuing traditions and culture is not an easy thing. Especially nowadays, young people’s interest in traditions is decreasing. In the Asian musical tradition, there is oriental music, specifically in Chinese music which has a history that dates back thousands of years. It is characterized by various traditional instruments like the guqin, pipa, and erhu. Classical Chinese music is known for its use of pentatonic scales and intricate melodies.

To keep oriental music known and enjoyed by Chinese Indonesians and other general public, a student activity club for oriental music namely Jiufeng was created. Jiufeng is a part of the Mandarin Language study program at Petra Christian University that facilitates students who want to study and preserve oriental music. The first generation was in 2016, and they made a comeback this year after a short hiatus due to the pandemic.

Recently this year, Jiufeng won a silver award in The 1st Chinese Cultural Practical Competition for Overseas Chinese Youths for folk music performances in the Young Adult category. The event was guided by the Overseas Chinese Affairs Office of the State Council of the People’s Republic of China, and hosted by China News Service.


Storyteller of The Beauty

Nicoline Patricia Malina, a Surabaya-born fashion photographer and A graduate of University of Hong Kong’s Fine Arts program, has established herself in Jakarta by bringing narratives to life through her lens. One of her endeavors is NPM Photography, a dynamic platform and creative production center that engages clients from around the world. She believes that her work can communicate thoughts, dreams, and aspirations, and so could anyone else. Through her passion, Nicoline also shares her knowledge by establishing photography school “The Class by NPM,” a photography school aimed at empowering young photographers and shaping a better future for the industry.

With a heart dedicated to see a positive transformation within society, Nicoline and her team founded Project Puan—a transformative portrait project that celebrates 100 Indonesian women. This project unveils the captivating narratives etched on the portraits, revealing the inner grace and resilience that define Indonesian women. And with Project Puan, she wants to spread awareness and remind everyone of the beauty of diversity in Indonesia as well as the power and courage that lies within every woman.


Biomethane Researcher

Meet Arief Abdurrakhman, a visionary in renewable energy technology, born in Surabaya in 1987. He’s a man on a mission, and his journey is nothing short of inspiring.

Arief earned both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees at Sepuluh Nopember Institute of Technology. He pursued his master’s degree with joint research at the Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg, Germany with a DAAD scholarship.

Arief is now pursuing his doctoral studies at Gadjah Mada University and is currently active as a lecturer at the Sepuluh Nopember Institute of Technology (ITS) and a founder of a start-up business in the field of renewable energy technology called Bionersia.

There is a humanitarian vision that Arief and his team want to address, namely increasing literacy, awareness, and welfare of society through optimizing the use of renewable energy, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, playing an active role in the carbon exchange, optimizing the Food-Water-Energy Nexus concept and handling organic waste. In the end, there will be an Indonesian nation that is sovereign in the fields of food and energy.

Bionersia is Arief’s breakthrough to achieve these visions. Bionersia has received several extraordinary achievements, such as obtaining a patent for purification equipment from the Indonesian Ministry of Law and Human Rights, becoming a funded startup in the technopreneur competition at Sepuluh Nopember Institute of Technology (ITS), become a selected startup in the government program through the Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education for incubation and funding.

Rock That Moves You

A unique rock band that has been around since 2008, Muveno has something different from other bands. For 14 years, despite undergoing 10 formation changes, Muveno still continues to work regardless of age.

The band has released 4 singles and 2 albums, the journey, itself, has been full of incredible ups and downs. The release of their debut album in 2015 was accompanied by a solo concert at XXI with crowdfunding from friends, fans, and family. Several media who were invited at that time were impressed by the success. 

It doesn’t stop there, the release of the second album also took quite a long time. Due to the health needs of one of the members’ family, producing the album was also very time-consuming and tiring. But when they saw the final result, Muveno felt that the second album was a work filled with diverse explorations of their musicality.
