Just a reminder that applications to speak or curate at the 5/8 
TEDxShelburneFallsSalon are due tomorrow.

*TEDxShelburneFallsSalon Seeks Curator, Speaker for
May 8 Evening Salon Event at McCusker's Market
Applications Due April 1*
SHELBURNE FALLS --  Maybe you've heard about or attended the fun, 
day-long TEDx conferences that have been talking place in Shelburne 
Falls the past couple of years. Maybe you're an armchair TEDster, 
watching the informative videos of talks that individuals from around 
the world have been presenting in the TED-classic 18-minutes-or-less 
fashion for the past 30 years. Maybe you have no idea what this TED 
brand of information sharing is all about.

Any way, you may be interested to learn more about a new TEDx format on 
the horizon. A TEDx Salon is a  short-format, small, recurring event 
where attendees can watch TED Talks, host a few speakers and have 
informal discussions about a specific and focused topic, somewhat 
different than the larger multidisciplinary approach that is presented 
at a longer/larger TEDx conference. Similarly, both types of events 
focus on the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, 
the world.

TEDxShelburneFalls' Curator and Organizer, Stacy Kontrabecki, has been a 
FCC member since 2000 and has offered to oversee the organization of a 
few TEDxShelburneFallsSalon events to be presented at the McCusker's 
Market. With her oversight, community members are invited to present 
proposals to be considered as guest Curators and Speakers for the first 
TEDxShelburneFallsSalon scheduled for the evening of Thursday May 8.

The general format of the night would be designed by the guest 
Curator(s) to include a presentation by one featured live Speaker, 
viewing of 2-3 TED talk videos supporting the theme, and facilitated 
discussion. The Curator(s) shall select the speaker and videos and 
attend at least one rehearsal where the speaker practices their talk. 
Curator(s) cannot also be the Speaker but may work with the Speaker to 
design the program/videos, discussions, etc. The live speaker will be 
videotaped and their talk posted to the international TEDxTalks YouTube 
channel. Kontrabecki will be available for general counsel, ensuring the 
TED practices and editorial guidelines are followed. No Speakers may be 
paid, but Curator and supporting staff during the event may receive 
Super-worker credit hours towards a discount when shopping at the 
Franklin Community Cooperative stores. Other TED guidelines may be found 
at http://www.ted.com/tedx.

To submit you proposal for the Thurs. May 8 evening salon, apply online, 
here, by April 1

*/About TEDxSalons/* /A TEDx Salon is a small, recurring event that can 
be held monthly, quarterly or at other intervals. A minimum of three 
events must be held a year to qualify as a Salon license. At a Salon, 
attendees can watch TED Talks, host a few speakers and have informal 
discussions about the recorded TED Talks. TEDx Salon events (unlike 
standard, corporate and university events) may focus on a single subject 
area and feature as many as (but no more than) four live speakers./
