*TEDxShelburneFallsLive Simulcasts the TED Conference Wed. Feb. 27 at GCC
/Theme: The Young. The Wise. The Undiscovered./*

SHELBURNE FALLS –  Each year, the world's leading thinkers and doers 
gather for an event many describe as the highlight of their year. 
Attendees have called it "the ultimate brain spa" and "a 4-day journey 
into the future, in the company of those creating it."

Can’t manage to get tickets to the always-sold-out, $7,500/seat flagship 
TED conference in Long Beach, CA? Heard about how innovative thinkers 
from Western Mass. had a blast networking and listening to each other 
speak on a variety of interesting and controversial topics at the 
premier TEDxShelburneFalls event on Nov. 3, 2012? Would you enjoy 
learning and talking with local thinkers and doers about how the ideas 
presented at TED2013 can be used to change our community?  Come join 
like-minded individuals at the free TEDxShelburneFallsLive simulcast of 
Day 3 of the TED conference: /The Young. The Wise. The Undiscovered. /on 
Wednesday February 27th to be inspired, share ideas and make a difference.

The free “TEDxLive” event will take place at Greenfield Community 
College, just 15 short minutes from Shelburne Falls and will feature an 
incredible line-up of 30 international speakers from various industries 
presenting in four 105-minute sessions throughout the day. An 
introduction to TED conferences session will be screened at 10 am before 
the simulcast for those interested in learning how TED's initiatives are 
turning ideas into action, in a lively session all about TED.  Sessions 
will feature 7-8 live talks apiece between 11:30 am and 10 pm. No local 
live speakers will talk, but members of the TEDxShelburneFalls community 
will be on hand to host.

Buckland-based Stacy Kontrabecki is the Curator and Organizer of 
TEDxShelburneFalls; “/I wanted to give local Tedsters a peek at the live 
TED conference and experience the speakers months, even years before the 
videos of their talks hit the TED.com digital archive. By doing so, we 
can begin discussing and testing/practicing their ideas immediately in 
order to hasten the change we want to see in our world/.” Kontrabecki 
herself will be attending the TEDActive2013 simulcast in Palm Springs 
for the entirety of the week, so the local TEDxShelburneFalls and 
Greenfield Community College community will be coordinating and staffing 
the event on Feb. 27.

Leo Hwang, Dean of Humanities at the college, as well as educators 
across the faculty and staff, are excited to participate in this 
partnership. “/TED talks have become an inspiring resource for 
educators, academics, intellectuals, artists, and people curious about 
their world. Hosting the simulcast at a community college is a wonderful 
opportunity to expose students to a diverse range of contemporary 
artists, musicians, scientists, and creative professionals. Giving 
students access to new ways of thinking, new ways of creating, new ways 
of being, empower them to imagine different possibilities, different 
professions, and inspire them to move through their own worlds 
differently, and that, is central to the mission of Greenfield Community 
College,” /notes Hwang.

*/About TEDxLive/*/TEDxLive is an extension of the TEDx program, 
launched by TED in 2010. TEDxLive events are TEDx events built around

*/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 in a small group. These local, self-organized events are 
branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED 
Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but 
individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and 

*/About TED /*/TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth 
Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 26 years ago, 
TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple 
initiatives. At TED, the world's leading thinkers and doers are asked to 
give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes. Talks are then made 
available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane 
Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Benoit Mandelbrot, 
Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and former UK Prime 
Minister Gordon Brown. Two major TED events are held each year: The TED 
Conference takes place every spring in Long Beach, California (along 
with a parallel conference, TEDActive, in Palm Springs), and TEDGlobal 
is held each summer in Edinburgh, Scotland./
/TED’s media initiatives include TED.com, where new TEDTalks are posted 
daily; the new TED Conversations, enabling broad conversations among TED 
fans; and the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and 
interactive transcripts as well as the ability for any TEDTalk to be 
translated by volunteers worldwide./
/TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals 
with a wish to change the world are given the opportunity to put their 
wishes into action; TEDx, which offers individuals or groups a way to 
host local, self-organized events around the world; and the TED Fellows 
program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to 
become part of the TED community and, with its help, amplify the impact 
of their remarkable projects and activities./
