Nominations are being accepted until 11:59 PM (Arizona time) on October 20th; selected speakers will be notified by the end of October.
We measure proposals by the power of the idea, and if the platform of TEDxASU can help propel the idea forward. The speaker presenting the idea needs to have credibility in the space and be actively working on the idea, as well as have the time to work with us to develop a compelling talk. (Fair warning, it is a lot of work–there are rounds of coaching and reviews, all with the intent of helping speakers hit a home run when they walk out onto the stage at the Tempe Center for the Arts.)
Those offering immersive audience experiences, as well as art performances, are welcomed and encouraged to apply for our 2018 TEDxASU event.
We’re seeking proposals from the ASU community and beyond for our 2018 event TEDxASU: Boundless. If you (or someone you know) have profound ideas that are appropriate for a TEDx talk, we want to hear from you. While we’ll review all submissions, we are a small team and cannot respond to each proposal individually.
For speaker guidelines on what we think makes for a great talk, please see here.
