TEDxMileHigh is revving up for another year of speakers, inspirationΒ and artistry β€” and they’re in search of Denver locals to deliver it. The organization announced that they will be holdingΒ auditions on March 4 and 5 to find performers for upcoming events. For those that are unfamiliar, TED is a non-profit organization with a mission to share “ideas worth spreading” via short but powerful talks (usually 20 minutes or fewer), and TEDxMile High is an independently organized program of local events unique to Denver that emulate the TED experience.

Previous TEDxMileHigh speakers have collectively racked up millions of views on YouTube andΒ included a human rights advocate, a gender equalist and anΒ “internet of things technologist.” From Professor Meghan Sobel,Β who gives talks that challenge misconceptions about sex trafficking toΒ Assetou Xango, whoΒ performs slam poetry, TEDxMileHigh imposes no limitations on the topics or content of its talks.Β 

To audition as a speaker you must submit an application by February 17. Selected applicants can audition talks as long as eight minutes.

According to its website, TEDx MileHigh is looking β€œfor talks that demonstrate new ways of approaching old problems, challenges to the status quo, fascinating research, innovative technology and design, and jaw-dropping performances.”
