TEDxBroadway Seeks New Voices for 2020 Event
Each year, we spend thousands of hours collectively searching for interesting and unique speakers for TEDxBroadway. And, each year some of the speakers come by way of the New Voices program, which is now accepting online submissions.
While we have a substantial network with which to work, we also wanted a way to welcome speakers with extraordinary ideas who might not be on our radar screen — so their voices could be heard, too. And, you know what? People want to speak.
Thousands of submissions have poured in online from around the world since TEDxBroadway’s New Voices program launched in 2018, and six speakers have gone on to share their talks on the TEDxBroadway stage. Like Marshall W. Mabry IV, a 17-year-old student from Georgia whose insight on “The Intersectionality of Black Boys and Shakespeare” moved and inspired the audience.
So, maybe it’s you or someone you know who should apply to the New Voices program (feel free to pass this along to folks) — we’re looking forward to once again finding new voices. And, if you’re not ready to take the stage at the 9th annual event on Tuesday, October 13, 2020 at New World Stages, you should make plans to be there now, while tickets are still only $100.
