TEDxSanAntonio has extended the deadline for speaker applications for the October 12, 2013 event. The new deadline is July 15.
Why the Extension?
“Two new media partners stepped forward this week with offers to get the word out to new segments of the San Antonio community,” said Rebecca Helterbrand, chair of the TEDxSanAntonio programming committee. “These new sponsors can help us reach folks who may not yet realize there is a TEDx event here. As our original deadline was Monday, July 1, we decided to give them two additional weeks so they can contribute their talk ideas.”
We welcome Texas Public Radio and JACK-FM (102.7) as our two newest media sponsors. Thanks for helping us spread the word!
What Talk Topics are Appropriate for TEDxSanAntonio?
TEDxSanAntonio’s 2013 theme is Minds Wide Open. We invite a wide range of topics, with an emphasis on innovation and creativity, and particularly invite talks that San Antonio has particular knowledge of, and expertise in. TEDx events are an opportunity for folks from San Antonio to share our innovative activities, programs and ideas in domains like:
- Healthcare and Wellness
- Energy and Conservation
- Environment & Sustainability
- Food and Nutrition
- Creativity and Productivity
- Technology and Cybersecurity
- Arts and Performances
Please note this list isn’t all-inclusive. Contribute your own categories in comments here. If you need more inspiration, spend some time watching TEDtalks. There’s no cost or risk to apply, just your time describing the idea you’d like to share.
We also invite select speakers from outside the San Antonio area to bring in a fresh idea or two. If you know people San Antonio really needs to hear from, let us know through the nomination form or encourage them to apply.
Please help us spread the word to people you know with a fascinating TED-style idea to share. Nominate them or encourage them to apply.
