Why apply?

Attendance is by application only, for this reason: TEDxBloomington will be of amazing benefit to the entire community, but the entire community cannot fit into the Buskirk-Chumley Theater. If you are interested in good ideas that change lives for the better, then you will find a lot to love in TEDxBloomington.

We’re excited to be receiving applications from diverse individuals, and looking forward to even more people’s answers to our application questions. We seek to foster cross-sector conversations during and after the event “in the spirit of TED,” so we seek applicants from all ages, backgrounds, and interests.

Applying to attend costs nothing but a bit of your time and thoughtfulness. An application does not guarantee an invitation to the Buskirk-Chumley Theater, but if not, it will include an invitation to a Livestream viewing party which may also feature special visitors from our mainstage. If you are invited to the theater audience, there will be a $60 fee which covers a full day’s fast-paced event. We’re offering a limited number of scholarships to people for whom $60 for an entire day of world-class ideas is too much of a stretch. If you are invited to a Livestream, there is no cost.

If you have further questions, please review the rest of our website or e-mail luci@tedxbloomington or christian@tedxbloomington.
