TEDxExeter is back for its 3rd year. This annual event brings a series of fascinating speakers to the Exeter Northcott Theatre for a day of learning, inspiration, insight and reflection on a range of topics at the top of today’s agenda.
In order to provide a visual focus and interest during the day, TEDxExeter would like to invite submissions from South-West based artists, designers and collectors for a piece to be included in the stage set.
A freestanding three-dimensional structure is sought, a maximum of 5m wide x 4m deep x 4m high. Pieces that are translucent, transparent or wireframe in nature are preferred to reduce potential impact on sight-lines in the theatre space. Please click on the thumbnails below for a photo of last year’s event and sketches of the proposed stage setting for 2014.
Please submit your proposal by Friday 14th March to email@example.com with dimensions and a photograph. Please also include a short biography and contact details.
If your piece is selected, you will need to arrange delivery of it to the Northcott Theatre (EX1) on the evening of Wednesday 26th March, and collection on the evening of Friday 28th March.
While we cannot offer a fee or expenses, you will gain exposure to the live audience of 460 on the day and potentially thousands in perpetuity via the TEDx YouTube channel and online video archive.
TEDxExeter 2014 – Ideas Without Frontiers
At TEDxExeter 2014 our speakers and performers will connect us with other worlds. Our talks will expose corruption in big business, share effective approaches to tackling social inequality and give a voice to those whose human rights are under threat. We will explore the impact of fast changing technologies on all our lives. We’ll journey through fire and forest to frozen landscapes. We’ll be challenged to consider worlds of extremes, cutting edge controversies and risky opportunities.
