Do 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.
