This independent TEDx event is operated under license from TED.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At TEDxLund, live speakers will spark deep discussion and connection. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organised. 

We're so excited to announce that we're beginning the recruitment process for TEDxLund 2018!

We want you because we're well aware that everyone has unique talents and skills whose help and knowledge would make this the greatest TEDx possible.  In order to apply, we would like you to email us your name, selected roles, relevant experience (if any), a quick summary about yourself and if you're potentially interested in taking part in future public speaking events.

Available Positions:

Graphic Designer

As a graphics designer you would be expected to design the merchandise and promotional material, while ensuring that all designs relate to the theme, the "Prima Materia." Additionally, if you could attach some of your previous work we would be appreciated.

Editors

As an editor you'd be playing a critical role in ensuring that the talks delivered are up to TED's high standards. You'd be working closely with your assigned speaker, yes just one speaker, to polish their talk and flesh out the idea while maintaining its relevance to the theme. To that end, A deep understanding of rhetoric, logical coherence and thematic composition is required in addition to the ability to dole out constructive criticism in a respectful manner.

As such, you'd need to be very proficient at English, we would appreciate if you would attach some of your previous works, either as a writer or an editor.

Guides

You'd direct attendees to their seats during the event in addition to serving as general helper at the venue. Generally, we expect that you'd be interacting with attendees during intermission to ensure that the event is going smoothly and as best as possible.

Finally, one person would also be at the door with a list ensuring that the guests in line are on the list.

General Workers

You're the life blood of our operation, who're meant to pick up slack wherever this comes up and take up positions whenever they arise.We hope that almost anyone who volunteers is also willing to be a General Worker, which would consist of transporting goods/food/etc. (anything really) to a storage space and on the day of the event to the venue. Furthermore, when advertisements are printed you'd be expected to put them around Lund and Malmö (and maybe around where you live).

Join today if you're interested in making new friends, developing a team spirit and applying your skills! Once it's all said and done you will also be treated to a thank you dinner and you get to keep your team merchandise.
