SPECIAL CONTRIBUTORS: Negin Sairafi & Matt Ryan, Co-Chairs – TEDxToronto 2015
The TEDxToronto conference is a unique full-day experience that brings together fascinating speakers, impressive performers and an audience that is passionate about our platform for "Ideas Worth Spreading".
We are hosting our 7th annual TEDxToronto conference on October 22nd at Koerner Hall, Royal Conservatory of Music, before an audience of over 1,000 delegates who will be carefully selected by our organizing committee. The application process is designed to help us identify a diverse group of individuals who will contribute to the dialogue within and beyond the conference itself. We receive thousands of applications, and search for those who will help amplify the ideas and conversations across their own networks.
What we look for is not as simple as one basic characteristic, demographic, or industry – but a balance of perspectives and attributes to create an ever-evolving audience. We seek out change-makers, people making a difference in the world, and those who are engaged among action-oriented people.
Are you passionate about helping your community, the country or the world to be a better place? We are interested in hearing from you. Have you launched a start-up or a business that showcases an innovation beyond the threshold of what was thought possible? We would love to hear to your story. Can you take what you learn from TEDxToronto to make an impact in someone else's life or to inspire your network of big thinkers? We encourage you to start those conversations at our conference.
TEDxToronto is accessible to those who believe in our mission to share "ideas worth spreading". When completing your application, remember to think outside of the box. It's easy to share ideas via social media, but how can you go beyond that? What types of conversations could you have before, during and after the conference to extend our reach and plant the seeds for change? We encourage you to think both locally and globally.
We have an inspiring and thought-provoking line-up of speakers and performers confirmed for this year’s conference – and we hope to see you in the audience.
TEDxToronto applications are open from July 14th at 10:00 a.m. – August 11 at 11:59 p.m.Note: Selected applicants will be contacted with an invitation to purchase a ticket. We also offer a limited amount of subsidized tickets, which can be requested on the application. All applicants will be notified by September 1st, 2015.
