NEDx | ideas that elevate
NEDx is a newly-created event for the Peak to Peak mountain communities, devoted to the sharing of innovative ideas through a live, public speaking format. Throughout an evening event, practiced presenters will share ideas worth spreading, followed by a celebratory reception.
On Thursday, October 17, 2019, at Nederland’s Backdoor Theater, the inaugural NEDx event will focus on the following theme: “Celebrating Peak to Peak Women Authors.” Six speakers will present 12-15 minutes talks on this year’s chosen topic, primarily focused on the elevation of women authors. The topic is designed to share and present ideas to the community as a whole. Presenters may be female or male, with the prerequisite of being published by nationally-recognized publications or a published book author, as well as residing in a town located in the Colorado Peak to Peak mountain community.
NEDx is currently accepting a short application for event speakers at nedx.org. Interested presenters must submit their idea for a NEDx talk and agree to attend one rehearsal a week before the event.
Please submit your idea and contact information on the form below by September 9th, 2019. This event is not intended to be a book reading or a “sell your book from stage” opportunity, but rather a way of presenting an idea related to being an author, publishing, or writing that can help elevate others. Upon receiving your application, a member of the NEDx committee will contact you.
Speaker Entry Deadline: September 9th, 2019
Event Date: October 17, 2019
Event Time: 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm
The NEDx event will include six NEDx presentations, music, refreshments and a reception, where local authors—both presenters and attendees from the Peak to Peak community—may sell their books and speak about their work.
