TEDxDayton is looking for diverse topics from diverse speakers who can deliver a focused, thought-provoking message in about ten minutes.
The 8th annual TEDxDayton signature event is now accepting applications from community members. The event will take place on Friday, October 16 at the Victoria Theatre in downtown Dayton, OH.
TEDxDayton’s mission is to bring the spirit of ideas worth spreading to deep conversation and connections within the community. The event will feature TED’s signature format of brief talks, demonstrations and performances meant to inspire learning and curiosity while encouraging meaningful conversation.
In search of this year’s presenters, the Speakers Committee has issued a “Call for Speakers” on the TEDxDayton website. Applicants, who do not have to be professional speakers, can apply online. TEDxDayton is looking for diverse topics from diverse speakers who can deliver a focused, thought-provoking message in about ten minutes.
For this year’s Signature Event, they will focus on the speaker’s topics in their talks rather than centering around one theme as in the past.
Aspiring speakers should complete an application by March 23. The Speakers Committee will review applications and invite selected candidates to auditions that will take place on May 4, 7, 12, and 16. Those selected to be TEDxDayton 2020 Signature Event speakers will be notified within a few weeks following auditions.
