TEDxSalem’s call to speakers for its 2017 event is now open!
The TEDxSalem speaker committee is looking for experts in a variety of fields who have new and dynamic ideas worth spreading.
“Our theme is ‘Revolutions,’” said co-curator Carlee Wright, “playing off the idea of New Year’s resolutions since TEDxSalem is taking place at the beginning of the year.”
“We are looking for speakers that have an idea for a revolution they want to start in our community and beyond,” said co-curator Brian Hart, “A revolution can be anything… a more walkable city, passive housing, ecologic farming, big data, internet of things, internet security, public art, hybrid electric trains, advances in brain science…”
“We are aiming for a diverse selection of speakers and topics highlighting the flavor of the Pacific Northwest and encourage anyone with an ‘idea worth spreading’ to fill out our online application,” Hart added. “We want to hear from our community members about the issues and subjects of which they are passionate. We are looking for speakers with messages that are innovative, inspiring and challenging.”
