We received this email from Kelo Kubu, As you all know TEDGlobal is coming to Tanzania next August 2017.
TED will be hosting speaker auditions in Lagos and Nairobi next February. The closing date for applications is December 13th. Below is the application link. Please share with your community.
Nairobi and Lagos might be a bit far but it might be something worth doing. Here’s more details:
We’re in the middle of the TED Africa Idea Search — a talent search for the next great TEDGlobal speaker. Could it be you?
We’re thrilled to announce that applications are open for two new events in Africa: TEDLagos and TEDNairobi 2017 Idea Search!
Here are just a few speakers who were discovered during past talent searches — and who’ve seen more than a million views on their great ideas:
- Richard Turere: My invention that made peace with the lions (1.8m views)
- Zak Ebrahim: I am the son of a terrorist. Here’s how I chose peace (3.75m views and a TED Book)
- Sally Kohn: Let’s try emotional correctness (1.6m views)
- Christopher Emdin: Teach teachers how to create magic (1.8m views)
Here’s how to enter the TED Africa Idea Search: Complete the entry form and make a 1-minute video. Your 1-minute video can and should be very simple: Just explain your idea in a few sentences, and give us a flavor of how you’d present it.
