TEDxSMU 2012 Fall Auditions

Auditions for TEDxSMU are back, and even bigger in 2012! At our second round of auditions, we’re looking for a Dallasite to knock our socks off with a short talk or performance that makes us “re:think.”

On October 19th, we’re partnering up with Dallas Social Venture Partners to host auditions as the capstone piece of its bigBANG! conference. We want your best stories, songs, poems…anything you can deliver in 3-6 minutes.

The top 8-10 entries will give a six minute talk at our TEDxSMU Audtions. At that event, the celebrity judges and audience will vote and the presenter with the most votes will be invited to speak at TEDxSMU.


If you want to attend the auditions, you may either purchase a full conference ticket for the bigBANG! (which includes admission to the TEDxSMU auditions) or purchase a ticekt here for the TEDxSMU Auditions.
