Celebrating ideas worth sharing, TED talks have become a global phenomenon. Independently-organized TEDx events have been informing and inspiring audiences all over the world, including here in Savannah.
Now in its twelfth year, TEDxSavannah 2023 is scheduled to take place Thursday, May 25 at the Georgia Southern University Armstrong Campus. The theme for this year’s event is "Connection."
“We chose 'connection' as this year’s theme because the pandemic showed all of us the importance of connecting with friends, family, co-workers and our community as a whole. Connection has many different meanings, so we look forward to seeing how our speakers bring their own perspective and experiences to this engaging theme,” said TEDxSavannah organizing committee member Karla Jennings.
TEDxSavannah is now accepting applications for speakers for this year’s event. Each speaker will have a maximum of 12 minutes to present an interesting talk relevant to the theme and the Savannah community. Live talks will be filmed and posted on the TEDx Talks YouTube channel. Those interested in speaking can apply online at the link below. The application deadline is Friday, Feb. 3 at 11:59 p.m.
Additionally, event organizers are gearing up to host the first-ever TEDxSavannah Speaker Application Workshop, which will take place Wednesday, Jan. 18 at 5:30 p.m. at GSU’s Armstrong Campus in Solms Hall. This event is free and open to the public, and registration is available online. For more information, visit tedxsavannah.com/.
