In case you haven’t heard, TEDxEastVan is coming to the York Theatre on Saturday, April 23rd. For those unfamiliar with TED Talks, they are a day long event that brings together creators, catalysts, designers and thinkers to share their ideas. TEDx is a local self-organized event that brings people together for deep discussion and connection within a small group. Talks from TED conferences are shared with the world for free as TED Talks videos on TV, radio, Netflix and many websites and are now available in more than 90 languages.
The TEDxEastVan team is searching for people with interesting ideas to speak at this year’s conference. They are on the hunt for scientists, artists, entrepreneurs, inventors, writers or Joe/Jane Average down the street. What gets you on the stage is your great idea. So first up, you need to apply. Once/if accepted, they will help you through the process with coaches to help you fine tune your talk. If you think you or someone you know has a great idea worth spreading, then you are encouraged to apply at TEDxEastVan 2016. The deadline for application is January 16th. If you have questions, you can email them directly at email@example.com.
Now on the other hand, if you prefer to be part of this amazing day, but not as a speaker but instead as a volunteer, there are many opportunities available. We invite you to check out the full listing at Volunteer Opportunities. If you have experience with graphic design, communications/marketing, project management, speaker development, volunteer management, camera operations, video production or video editing, TEDxEastVan would like to hear from you.
If you want to be inspired and share ideas, this will be the place to be on April 23, 2016. This is certainly where we will be. Hope to see you there.
