TEDx St Kilda 2016 – Performers + Speakers Wanted

By  |  0 Comments

TedX St Kilda are currently seeking talented performers to participate in their June TEDxStKilda event:

At TEDxStKilda, we believe in the intrinsic value of artistic merit and if you or your group are talented performers, we’d encourage you to apply. We are accepting applications from performers of any kind, such as musicians, vocalists, dancers, poets and comedians. In keeping with the spirit of TED and St Kilda’s creative soul, we are interested in performances of original content.

TEDxStKilda is a volunteer-run event and we rely on volunteers for our success. As such, there is no financial reimbursement for the performance. However, performing at TEDxStKilda will provide you with invaluable exposure. As well as entertaining our guests and partners on the event day, you will benefit from promotion through our wider social networks. Just as our speakers are professionally recorded, with quality picture and sound, so will your performance. As we are a part of an international TEDx community, your content maybe shared on a national or even international scale.

Requirements:
•    3-5 minute performance
•    Original content
So apply now to helen@tedxstkilda.com with
•    A CV/bio
•    A link to an example of your work (e.g – soundcloud, YouTube)
•    An explanation as to why you are suited to performing at TEDxStKilda 2016

Speakers Nominations Closing Soon
Additionally, applications for TEDxStKilda speakers are still open and will close on the 7th of February. However, we have received some excellent applications so far, so be sure to apply soon to avoid disappointment.

Consider our theme and how it reflects upon your own experiences:
Unravelling Humanity: Passion, Fear, Failure

What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxStKilda, where x = independently organised TED event. At our TEDxStKilda, event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self organised.

TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis.
