I regret the fact that not everyone who wants to attend can come. In an ideal world we would have unlimited capacity but our wonderful venue has limited capacity (about 230 seats in all).
We will have a live stream, and we upload talks onto the TEDx Channel on Youtube.
– A sentence describing yourself, what you do and where you are from. We welcome diversity of age, nationality, background. There are places for normal people too – for 20-25 year old Polish students – but if (for example) you are a Grandmother from Panama, running workshops in prisons – you will bring diversity – and it will be an honour to welcome you to our event.
– anything else that you think should encourage us to give you a ticket. For example one TEDx applicant wrote “I’m raising two small children with little support. TED and TEDx stops me from going crazy – and I talk to my children about what I am learning even though they are a bit young to understand, I’ll do everything and anything I can to be positive and make a contribution on the day”. She got her ticket.
3 Doesn’t this make TEDxKazimierz elitist?
No. We are anti-elitist. We don’t give tickets to people with important job titles, but to people who have a sparkle in their eyes, and who have a positive “can do” attitude. We disciminate positively towards the characteristics all applicants have some influence over: To people who want to make the world a better place – who will come to our event determined to contribute and make the day special, not just sit there, expecting to be impressed, being critical without being constructive, aiming to take rather than give.
Furthermore, you are trusting us with a day of your life. We don’t take you for granted. The success of our event is measure by the way attendees/participants feel about their experience. We don’t just aim to make sure you feel it was a great way to spend your day – we want you to tell people it was one of the best days in your year (or even your life). We aim for the stars.
5. Who decides? Several members of the TEDxKazimierz team review all the applications and vote.
7 Who pays for TEDxKazimierz ? We cover our costs with generous financial support from Urząd Marszałkowski Województwa Małopolskiego (the regional government) and a couple of other sponsors (in 2017 Delphi and IG) . other sponsors give “in kind” support, free badges, T shirts (Lynka thank you) etc, . Our biggest cost is the venue, (which we get at cost, and speaker travel costs) We are not allowed to pay them, because the speakers know we work for free, they are ready to give their time for free.
9. If I don’t get a ticket will I be able to watch on line or with other people?
Yes – we will have a live stream, details will be posted on the website and social media, and if there is demand we may organise viewing parties. If you don’t get a ticket we will tell you about the viewing party option.
