Performer Application 2021

What type of performance can you do?

We are also looking for inspiring and unique performances for TEDxFolkestone 2021. Performances can be of any type; everything from singer/songwriters, poets, choirs and dancers, to performance pieces, immersive experiences or audience participatory performances. 

As well as more traditional standout stand-alone performances, we are also very interested to hear proposals and ideas for unique bespoke creative interpretations of the theme A New Horizon. TEDx is a platform to share new ideas – and so is a great opportunity to really think outside the box.
