A local nonprofit needs help! Cross-posted from the Media Arts Project website:

TED fans: 2010 TEDx Teams Need PAID Videography Help and Volunteers

Sponsored by the TED conference but independently organized by local people, TEDxAsheville returns in 2010 after rave reviews and a sold-out show last summer at the Orange Peel. And it returns with double the fun: 2010 marks the debut of TEDxNextGenerationAsheville, a new event where young people present visions, passions and ideas for the future to an audience ready to be inspired.

As fan-organized, Asheville-centric events, TEDxAsheville and TEDxNGA bring homegrown great ideas and virtuoso performances to a local stage, sharing Asheville's most exceptional talent (of all ages) with the whole world through digital recordings of the day's performances.


TEDxAVL and TEDxNextGen are taking proposals for videotaping this year's events. A paid videography team will record all talks and performances, edit them, and upload them to the TEDxTalks YouTube channel.

Learn more about TEDxAsheville videography here.

All videos are hosted online indefinitely on the TEDxTalks channel, and all are considered for broadcast as a TED talk on


Other than the videography team, TEDxAVL 2010 and TEDxNextGen are largely run on volunteer efforts. Volunteer organizers are needed in the following areas. If you are interested or know someone who might be, send email to and indicate which area interests you.

Stay tuned for information on the nomination process for 2010...
