Speak at the TEDxWarwick Student Salon

Following the success of our first-ever Student Salon at the beginning of 2017 and our second edition in 2018, we are now looking for speakers and performers for our upcoming Student Salon in January 2020.

You can apply to be a speaker, a performer or a hybrid (speaker with some performance elements).

We’re looking to hear from current students at the University of Warwick, from both undergraduate and postgraduate backgrounds, who have an interesting story or idea that deserves to be shared. We are particularly interested in individuals who have taken an innovative approach to reinvent their discipline or passion, or who portray a comprehensive knowledge of a chosen topic. Performers are given more flexibility in this regard, with more emphasis being placed on their skill.

Don’t worry if you don’t have it all pinned down yet - we’ll be guiding you through the content curation and speech delivery process. All you need is an idea worth spreading!

If your written application impresses us, we will invite you to an audition where you will get a chance to perform 5 minutes of your talk or performance. Auditions will be held in Weeks 8-10 of Term 1.

So if you are…

An INVENTOR sharing an innovation with community-changing potential

A TEACHER sharing valuable knowledge in a memorable way to children, teenagers or adults around the world

A PRODIGY with young talent ready to break out

An ARTIST who can showcase their work in a compelling, new way

A PERFORMER of music, dance, comedy, drama, or something entirely different

A SAGE with wisdom the world needs from those who have learned it the hard way

An ENTHUSIAST with an infectious passion for a topic they can share

A CHANGE AGENT helping shape the world’s future with work that matters

A STORYTELLER - vivid, original, meaningful - with a talent for connection

A SPARK with a powerful idea worth spreading

…you should apply to take part in our Student Salon!
