Speakers sought for Ted Talks-style event

Applications will be accepted through Jan. 18 for an annual event featuring the TED talk format.

The second TEDxGrand Junction event is scheduled for March 9 at the Avalon Theater, 645 Main St.

The event will feature a series of short talks and demonstrations designed to foster learning, inspiration and curiosity as well as conversations.

The theme for the event is “We are Creators.”

“We chose this theme because it reflects our creative community in this new era for TEDxGrand Junction,” said Josh Hudnall, co-organizer of the event.

“We’re looking for creative ways to change and improve the experience for the audience while paying tribute to the creative ideas,” Hudnall said.

Applications are available online at https://www.papercall.io/tedxgj2019.

A presenter committee will review applications and invite selected candidates to auditions set for Feb. 15 and 16. Participants will be notified within a few weeks of auditions if they’ve been selected as presenters at the 2019 TEDxGrand Junction.
