Did you know that the “E” in “TED” stands for “Entertainment”?

That’s how important entertainment is to an event like TEDxTauranga.

We will have 10 live speakers on stage + 2 or 3 live entertainment acts during our next event on 22 June 2019.

This is your chance to be one of those entertainers.

In the past we have had:

  • Kapa-haka
  • Percussion/drums (everyone in the audience learnt how to play the drums together)
  • Hoola-hooper
  • 2-piece bands, 4-piece bands
  • Solo singers
  • Sand art telling local stories
  • Childrens choir
  • Spoken-word poetry

So if you can sing, or dance, or perform, or entertain, in a group, or solo, then record your demo video and apply before the deadline!

We’re looking forward to seeing what you’ve got.
