TEDxSanJuanIsland is currently accepting submissions for our next event on June 22, 2019.  Our 2019 theme, Origins, invites thought leaders, change makers, and passionate experts to tackle today's big issues by examining who we are, where we came from, and where we are headed. 

Our speakers come from all walks of life, disciplines, and industries within or beyond San Juan Island. What they all have in common is an idea and the passion to share it. Everyone has a life story to tell, but we’re not just seeking storytellers - we’re seeking the truly unique, radical ideas behind them. The “who” and “what” doesn’t matter as much as the “why.” As a speaker, your objective is to share your idea in an engaging way and to answer the question, “Why?” Why do you care? Why should the attendees? Why does your idea deserve to be on stage? If you’re up to the challenge and passionate about your idea, we’d love to hear from you.  Speakers must have credibility in their space and be actively working on the idea, as well as have the time to work with us to deliver a compelling talk.
