2021 Fall Signature Event Theme is NEXT

Greensboro, NC (March 20, 2021) The TEDxGreensboro Planning Committee is seeking proposals from individuals interested in making a presentation for the fall 2021 TEDxGreensboro:NEXT program.  We will feature extraordinary thinkers and doers who can share ideas that may spark meaningful change for our community and beyond. The program is being planned for October as a virtual, live or hybrid event depending on COVID safety guidelines at the time.

The speaker application is on-line at tedxgreensboro.com/speaker-application. The deadline for receipt of proposals is April 30, 2021 at 5pm. Proposals will be reviewed by the TEDxGreensboro Planning Committee and selected speakers will be contacted in late May.

TEDxGreensboro will select talks on a broad range of topics including science, technology, social development, design, education, medicine, art and others. Presentations should reflect actual personal and professional experience. For this year’s theme, NEXT, TEDx Greensboro speakers will explore what comes after the present – ways in which we chase our imagination with curiosity, rebound from the unexpected, and venture into the unknown with courage.

The worldwide organization known as TED—which stands for technology, entertainment and design—is a nonprofit, nonpartisan foundation. Their only agenda is to make ideas worth spreading accessible. Since 2012, TEDxGreensboro has presented Salons, Webcasts, seven full day TED -like experiences of live speakers and one virtual event in 2020. The TALKS from all of the 8 programs since 2012 are available for free on YouTube here.
