Are you pitching your idea at the TEDxSaxion stage?

Applications closed! For our two upcoming events Pursuit of Happiness and Brave New World we are seeking passionate speakers/performers/artists. Student or non-student, entrepeneur, gardener, local, (eu)regional or international; everyone can apply! TEDx stands for ideas worth spreading; for example technological, innovative, renewing ideas. That’s why we’re organizing an open mic! On Wednesday June 3, you can pitch your idea to a jury and audience. We believe that there are many untold stories that should earn a spot at the TEDxSaxionUniversity-stage. Are you the one we’re looking for?



In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxSaxionUniversity, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxSaxionUniversity event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.
