TEDx NU-9.jpgDo you think you have what it takes to speak at TEDx NorthwesternU 2015? If so, apply now speaker applications are due February 26.


The theme for this year’s event, which will be held May 9 on the Evanston campus, is “beautiful chaos.” The event will feature speakers from the Northwestern community including students, faculty and alumni who will present 15-minute talks on a range of topics.


Last year’s TEDx NorthwesternU event drew capacity crowds for three sessions of talks from different speakers.


TED, a nonprofit devoted to Technology, Entertainment and Design, operates national conferences covering a wide scope of issues. The organization also encourages and licenses independent self-organized “TEDx” events around the country, combining video and live speakers to spark discussion and connection.
