ASBURY PARK, N.J.—Oct. 2, 2018—TEDxAsburyPark, one of the largest and highest-rated TEDx conferences on the East Coast, today announced its call for speakers for its 2019 event. Themed “CHAOS,” the event will be held on May 18, 2019 at the Paramount Theatre on the Asbury Park Boardwalk. Individuals interested in speaking or performing at CHAOS can submit their applications at TedxAsburyPark.com, now through December 15, 2018.
In its seventh year, TEDxAsburyPark will feature a full day of entertainment, including TED-style talks by myriad speakers as well as art, musical acts, comedy, dance, and theatrical performances all tied to this year’s theme of “CHAOS”
TEDxAsburyPark is an annual volunteer-organized event dedicated to education, community, innovation, and “ideas worth spreading.” Each year, a different theme culminates in a stimulating day of non-fiction theater. Well over 100 businesses, nonprofit leaders, professionals, students from local universities, and sponsors plan, manage, and fund the all-day event.
“CHAOS: the void, the unknown, the absurd, the mess, the mystery. The only consistency is inconsistency,” said Brian Smiga, co-founder of TEDxAsburyPark. “Life is chaotic, but that needn’t be frightening. We’re looking for speakers to share how they’ve wrangled chaos via the sharing of ideas, music, comedy, science, design, and beyond. We aim to fill our audience with the confidence to embrace chaos, whatever their chaos may be.”
TEDxAsburyPark discovers and curates more than 25 speakers, entertainers, and artists who will share their stories. At a TEDx event, live speakers spark deep discussion and connections through their stories.
The goal of TEDxAsburyPark is to bring world-class TEDx talks to the Jersey Shore in an all-day event that inspires attendees to learn and think about the future of their home in New Jersey.

About TEDx, x = Independently Organized Event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = an independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
