Do you think you have what’s it takes to be a TEDxYoungstown speaker or performer? We want you to audition! TEDxYoungstown is holding open auditions on June 17, 2014 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. at the Youngstown Business Incubator (YBI). The YBI is located Federal St. in downtown Youngstown.
A panel of judges will select speakers to present (or perform) their ideas on the main stage at the 2nd TEDxYoungstown event on January 23, 2015 at the Ford Theater in Bliss Hall on the campus of Youngstown State University.
Auditions will take place on a first come, first served basis. Those auditioning are asked to prepare a no-longer-than-3-minute presentation about their idea for the panel comprised of members of the TEDxYoungstown planning team and previous TEDxYoungstown speakers. Reviewing the TED Commandments on the types of talks and speakers we seek is recommended. They can be found HERE.
Speakers selected at the open call event will join the speakers and performers selected by the curatorial team to make up the daylong event on January 23.
The open call audition is free and open to the public.
