TEDxECUAD Founder and Licensee Scott Mallory (2017) was featured in an interview by the Executive Director of the TEDx Program, Jay Herratti, to share insight into his organizational process and tips for all event types including creative collaboration in universities, building workflows that support an evolving event, and fitting everything into work–life balance. The live video hangout was joined by TEDx teams around the world including a Q & A, and archived as an ongoing resource for members of the program.
TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share experiences, operating under licenses and guidelines provided by TED. Joining close to 3,000 TEDx organizations in over 170 countries, TEDxECUAD has made a name for itself for art and design in the global TEDx community and has been included in presentations by TED to inspire events around the world to integrate different levels of art into meaningful TEDx experiences.
Work by the TEDxECUAD video team was highlighted in a workshop for 500 TEDx'ers gathered from 70 countries at the TEDFest 2018 Conference in NYC. Live painting, illustration and design work was featured in a workshop on innovation during TEDGlobal 2017 in Tanzania and throughout Central Asia and Eastern Europe, and customized colouring books and name badges were featured alongside other inspiring highlights from events around the world via social media (@TEDx_Official). As a result, events from Chicago to Bangkok have adapted the work of TEDxECUAD within their own events.
Entering its third year, TEDxECUAD continues to strive for both local and global impact. TEDxECUAD is looking for Emily Carr students, alumni, faculty and staff to join the team for their 2018-2019 programming. Email the team to learn more, and see the highlights from the 2018 event!
