The focus of these auditions is not to pitch a product or service, but to present new ideas or experiences and share their impact on our community. Up to eight speakers will be selected from these auditions to present a full-length TEDx Talk at the TEDxJerseyCity conference in December at the Landmark Loews Theatre. This year’s theme is “Go.” TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas in the form of short, powerful talks.
