TEDx Spokane 2019 is an independently organized TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design) event. TEDx Spokane has been very successful during our past six years and we continue to grow. Our conference this year will be held in downtown Spokane at the Bing Theater on October 26, 2019.
We are currently seeking presenter applicants for the TEDx Spokane 2019 event as found in a wide range of different areas, perspectives, industries, networks and contexts. We also welcome emerging talent in dance, music, the fine arts and the performing arts in general.
Speakers and talks for TEDx Spokane will be considered primarily (though not exclusively) upon the three following criteria:
– An Idea Worth Sharing,
