Speaker Submissions Closed for April Event

Submissions are closed for TEDxSantaCruz2015: Radical Collaboration, and as our co-organizer Irene Tsouprake says, “WOW, do we have an incredible roster of speakers on the subject!”

“From the origins of life in the universe to the human genome to female orgasm to public art as a means of environmental and civic healing, be prepared for a wild ride.

“Thank you to all who applied. We curated hundreds of submissions, and we’re so pleased and excited about the story that is unfolding for the day.”

The event is six weeks away, so if you haven’t bought your TICKET yet, now is the time!
