TEDxYouth joins the TEDxBrayfordPool family
TEDxYouth@BrayfordPool are seeking dynamic young speakers and performers from across the UK to share their ideas with us in Lincoln, on Saturday 4th November in our first ever TEDxYouth event on the theme of:
Creating our Future!
We want to invite speakers and performers between 16 and 26 to tell us how they would help shape and create our future world. We’d also like to hear from anyone over 26 who are helping to shape the future with young people.
You will have the opportunity to give a live talk, creative presentation or performance of up to 18 minutes - all presentations will be filmed and uploaded to the TEDx YouTube channel.
We’re looking for young people interested in the big issues of today and what matters to you. If this is you then visit www.tedxbrayfordpool.com/tedxyouth and fill out the applications form.
We will be selecting the most dynamic proposals to reflect a breadth of ideas from young people from across the country.
If your application is successful you will be given the option to be coached on skype by artist and event host, Hetain Patel, whose TED talk “Who Am I? Think Again”, has been seen online over 2.5 million times. Hetain will guide you on a 1-2-1 basis in creating your unique presentations, to be performed to a live audience. You will also have the opportunity to consult with our production manager prior to your presentation.
The deadline for applications is Sunday 24th September at 18:00 and successful applicants will be notified by Friday 29th September. Online mentoring and production consultations will take place between 2nd and 20th October.
Everyone involved with TEDxBrayfordPool & TEDxYouth@BrayfordPool is a volunteer, not even our speakers are paid. However, if you are selected we will cover your travel and accommodation costs to Lincoln for the event.
