Tuesday, August 12th, 2014 | 5:30pm – 8:30pm | The Next Chapter – Mt. Adams

Our TEDxCincinnati Happy hours are different than our main stage events. They are designed for everyone to connect and network and this time we will be doing our first ever TEDxCincinnati auditions. Each speaker will be allowed up to 2.5 minutes on stage to share their idea worth spreading. We want to tap into the huge talent and potential from our city so take this opportunity to audition to be a speaker or performer at one of our future events. If you don’t want to audition, you can still join us in watching and casting your vote for who may be next at a TEDxCincinnati stage.

Tuesday August 12, 2014
5:30PM to 8:30 PM, auditions start at 6:30PM.
The Next Chapter in Mt. Adams.
**Free parking at the monastery parking lot

If you are interested in auditioning, start by sending an email to TEDxAudition@gmail.com.
The auditions at the August 12th event are for:

  • Any future TEDxCincinnati event including but not limited to the Main Stage event on October 16, 2014. The main stage event includes nearly 600 participants. Other TEDxCincinnati events include up to 200 participants.
  • Audience Choice Award: Audience members will be able to cast a secret ballot for their favorite speaker or performer.
