TEDxHvAmsterdam Wildcard Event

Have you always dreamed of your own TEDx Talk? This is your chance!


The selection board is busy selecting HvA’s changemakers and rebels with a cause to speak at TEDxHvAmsterdam. But we still have one spot left and that could be you! We know that the community is full of amazing ideas that can inspire others. We are therefore hosting the TEDxHvAmsterdam Wildcard event, in which you can pitch your idea worth spreading to the selection board.

Thursday 5th September, 16:00-18:00 FLOOR-tribunes

So are you a student or a young professional and do you have an idea worth sharing? Send in your proposal, get invited to pitch your idea and get the chance to be one of the speakers during TEDxHvAmsterdam!

How does it work?

To be able to make a selection, we ask you to send a proposal with your idea for a talk to info@tedxhvamsterdam.nl before the 25th of August 2019.

Make sure to include (maximum 1 page A4):

● Please write the proposal in English, the talk will also be in English.

● Full name + short bio + your link with the HvA (if there is).

● A picture.

● Tell us your passion or idea that you want to talk about. The subject must be linked

to the theme "The Producible Future". What idea do you have to redesign our future?

Note that this idea must be innovative, realistic and interesting. Above all, tell us how

this idea has already proven its potential. Political or religious agendas and

promotion of a book, organization or product are not permitted. 

*Your idea/proposal doesn’t have to be a fully rounded story yet. If you are selected, you will be linked to a professional coach who will support you in developing an inspiring story and a powerful presentation.

The Selection Board will select the pitchers for the event based on these proposals. You will receive a message from us no later than the 1st of September to tell you whether you have been selected to pitch at the Wildcard Event.
