The town of Warrenton is seeking speakers, volunteers and business partners for its TEDxWarrenton debut, scheduled for Sept. 24.

The independently organized event, licensed by TED, will feature speakers and performers focused on the theme "Believe In."

Tara Helkowski, co- founder of TedXWarrenton, said she is excited to bring the event to Fauquier, and her team “wants to create an event that focuses on bringing together the community.”


TEDxWarrenton will feature shared ideas and entertaining presentations from citizens of Fauquier County and beyond.

“We believe everyone has something valuable to say that the world needs to hear. Whether based on your work, experience or observations, we want to take this opportunity to work with you to pinpoint and shape it into an idea worth spreading on the TEDx stage,” Helkowski said in a news release.

The speaker application is open through April 30.
