Attend TEDxManitoba 2012

Apply Now to attend TEDxManitoba 2012: (what)if x

Closing Date: November 27, 2011

This one-day event is open to anyone who is passionate about spreading ideas in the spirit of TED.

We’re hoping the application process will help us gather a wide variety of attendees: young, old, experienced, or total newbies. We want to build an audience who will spread the ideas surrounding TEDxManitoba throughout our beautiful province and around the world.

Due to TEDx guidelines, seating is limited to only 100 attendees, so apply before November 27, 2011 for a chance to be selected as one of 100 participants who get to attend the live event.

Location and time

This year TEDxManitoba is holding its second annual event at Tom Hendry Theatre at the MTC Warehouse on February 9, 2012.

How does the application process work?

Our goal is to make sure the application process is designed to encourage a diverse group of guests and is fair to all applicants.

An evaluation team consisting of a diverse group of people (seniors, students, professionals, various cultural backgrounds, artists, jokers, coffee-drinkers, etc.) reviews your answers. More than one evaluator reviews each application.

It seems everyone knows everyone in our city and province; the degrees of separation are few. To ensure a fair and transparent evaluation process, those on the evaluation team only ever see the answer portion of your application; only one individual on the TEDxManitoba Organizing Committee has access to match your answers to your name and contact information.

The selection will be made in December. If you are selected as one of our 100 participants, you will be notified by email or phone.

Some things to keep in mind:

  • As an active participant, it is important to the success of TEDx events that you are committed to sharing your ideas and making new connections.
  • There are only 100 spots available, and many people vying for those spots. If you are selected to attend, we ask you to commit to stay for the full-day event to get the most out of your TEDxManitoba experience.

Why only 100 seats you ask? In addition to being a licensing requirement of TEDx, an intimate setting means more interaction, conversation and connections with the speakers and attendees of the event.

So apply to attend TEDxManitoba now!

What if you don’t get a seat? No problem. Most people will be joining us online through our live stream, and we’re looking forward to having you join us.
