TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 25 years ago, TED has grown to support world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events which focus on an interdisciplinary transfer of knowledge. TED provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx conferences, including ours, are self-organized.
TEDxPortobello was launched in 2015 in the seaside community of Portobello and has since run twice to sell out crowds. Run by volunteers, TEDxPortobello is inspired by the skills, passion, and ideas which exist in this area of Portobello.
ABOUT THE ROLES
The TEDxPorty event coordinators will help shape the 2017 event and build a team that represents that vision. Over the years, TEDxPorty has developed a wide community of supporters, volunteers and partners who will be helpful in kickstarting the 2017 event. While the event has run for two years, there is an opportunity to make the event your own.
Applications are due on the 7th November. We will then plan to meet with interested candidates over coffee to talk about their applications and interest.
