Use the form below to apply either as a helper or photographer for the event so that we can get to know you better. If you have any questions, send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org to get in touch.
A note on volunteering vs. attending:While we try to plan for volunteers to watch part of the program, we cannot guarantee this as your focus will lie on helping run the event. You should not apply as a volunteer just to attend the event - feel free to purchase a ticket and we will be happy to host you. However, volunteering as a helper does give you a unique behind the scenes look into what it takes to make TEDxTUM a reality, and you'll be a part of our passionate team for the day!
Important dates: 1. We will have a volunteers kick-off meeting where we tell you everything you need to know, get to know each other and give you a sneak peek into the event! This will take place on Friday, 26th of October, from 17:00 at the TUM city center campus. Afterwards, we will go for food and drinks with you and inform you about the exact location ahead of time.2. We will also have a rundown meeting of the event day with all of our team on Sunday, 25 November from 16:00-19:00 (does not apply to photographers). 3. You will help run the event for the full day on Saturday, 1 December, so you should be there from 8:00 to 22:00. 4. We will also assign you to help with either the setup on Friday (30th) from 12:00 on or the tear-down on Sunday (2nd) from 9:00, depending on your availability, for about 4-6 hours (does not apply to photographers).
Please make sure that you can be there at the kickoff & rundown meetings, as well as commit for the full day on 1 December, and either setup or tear-down before you apply.
Tickets and volunteering:Our ticket sales open on 14 October. If you submit an application to become a volunteer by midnight on Friday, October 12th, we will let you know by October 13th whether you have been chosen as a volunteer for this year's TEDxTUM, so you know whether you should get a ticket to be part of the event. It will still be possible to apply as a helper after the 12th of October, but we will not be able to inform you about your application before ticket sales begin.
We are looking forward to hearing from you, and can't wait to welcome you into our event-day team!
All the bestThe TEDxTUM team
