We're excited to announce our 2015 event Theme: •Spark!• 

•Every invention, innovation, enterprise and world changing movement begins with a spark.•  It’s a nudge in the mind that asks “What if?” It’s the clarity that precedes action. Sparks are powerful and fragile. They need a response in order to grow into flame. We want to celebrate the sparks that are catching fire in our region and initiate the next sparks to change our world.

The theme was selected from more than 100 ideas submitted this fall. Thanks to Jess DaPolito for the selected theme. Jess will receive complimentary tickets to TEDxGreensboro 2015 in appreciation for her theme suggestion.

With this theme in mind, we are now soliciting proposals for speakers for TEDxGreensboro. We are seeking speakers from broad communities – educators, artists, inventors, immigrants, scientists, entrepreneurs, and innovators – who have seen or contributed sparks that our community is challenged to fan into action. Who are innovators, explorers and doers working at the moment who  create the Spark!?
