POSTPONED until 2022 due to COVID-19
The TEDx phenomenon is coming to Warrington Pyramid Parr Hall, 6-9pm, Thursday 23 June 2022, and its organisers are seeking inspirational people with ‘ideas worth spreading’.
The team has selected the theme ‘Build connection, Strengthen communities’ to complement Warrington’s independent thinking yet collaborative spirit, and speakers will be chosen based loosely on having a fresh and innovative idea that could have a positive impact on communities, particularly in the local area.
Each speaker will be filmed, and with people watching worldwide, the exposure for the speaker to share their idea is potentially huge. All talks are stored and kept open for view on the TED website forever.
Applications to be one of up to only ten speakers on the night, delivering a talk of 3-12 minutes in length, are now welcomed.
To enter, speakers must submit a 3–5 minute video describing their ‘idea worth spreading’ and the impact it could have.
Full details, including selection criteria, the commitment involved and how to submit an entry can be found on the TEDx Warrington website www.tedxwarrington.co.uk
Closing date for applications is 10pm 8 March 2020*
Information about attendee tickets and opportunities to support the event with time, expertise and sponsorship are also detailed on the website.
* Due to postponement, existing applications will be honoured and reviewed first. The website will be updated with more application information early 2022.
