TEDxBucharest introduces: Open Mic

Mark your calendars for the first TEDxBucharest event of 2017! TEDxBucharestLive - Open Mic is the first of the series, concentrated around the idea of YOU. Join us in exploring the most pressing questions of our time and imagining what our shared future might look like. Be part of the global TED 2017 experience through a live broadcast of the event in Vancouver and also take notes and exchange ideas with possible future TED speakers!

The Open Mic night is an excellent opportunity for everyone and anyone who possess an “idea worth sharing” to present it in front of an audience of TED enthusiasts and former TEDxBucharest Speakers.

With three minutes at hand, about a dozen presenters will share with you their beliefs, concepts or conclusions, without any slides or supporting imagery. At the end of the event, you will get to vote the next candidates on the shortlist for a speech at the big 2017 TEDxBucharest conference!

TED 2017: The Future You. What does the future hold for you, for me, for us? This year, TED will balance a hard look at the seismic shifts that are altering the way the world works with insights into how we can foster personal learning, growth and empowerment. The result: You'll leave inspired and prepared for the change ahead.

The future waits for no man, so what are you waiting for? Book your seats below and prepare to start building the better you!
