Open Audition Details: Are you ready for your shot at the TEDxColumbus stage?

Get your talks and performances ready! Thursday, August 16 (7-9pm, Columbus Museum of Art) is your chance to show us what you’ve got and possibly become a TEDxColumbus speaker.  We are looking for ideas that fit into the theme “The Future Revealed.”  Make sure to bring us your personal experience around the idea, any research that supports it (obviously, in a quick summary) and your call to action – what do you want us to do with the idea?

All interested speakers and performers will be welcome to the stage in front of a panel of TEDxColumbus partners to audition to become a speaker (or performer) at TEDxColumbus 2012 event on October 5 at COSI. Speakers & performers will be limited to 3 minutes to share your one idea (this has been updated from previous notices). Due to the limited time, no powerpoints/keynotes will be permitted (they will be allowed on October 5). Any musical performances will have to be done acoustically for the audition only.

Registration (outside the auditorium) will take place on a first come, first serve basis starting at 6:45 p.m.  Everyone’s talks will be recorded and you will be asked to sign a release for both video and still photography usage.

The panel will make their selections and we will make the announcements of the winners on August 19 on this blog and through social media.  All participants will be emailed the results directly.

If you have any questions before the event, please email us at TEDxColumbus@gmail.com

Bring us your best and we look forward to hearing about it on August 16!
