Location: Manhattan New York
Deadline: June 17, 2018 (TODAY)
Details and Requirements: TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. The TED Residency program is an incubator for breakthrough ideas. It is free and open to all via a semiannual competitive application. Those chosen as TED Residents will spend fourteen weeks at TED headquarters in New York City, working on their ideas. Although some may produce an artwork, a manuscript or an amazing theorem, each Resident will also develop a TED talk and deliver it on a TED stage. Residents will be included in the vibrant office and community culture of TED and will benefit from coaching and rehearsals in the in-house TED Theater. Residents may also have the opportunity to attend TED events. Anyone 18 or older who is proficient in English qualifies. We don’t care where you went to school. We are looking for passion and expertise. TED generally spotlights thinkers, makers, inventors, advocates, filmmakers, photographers, musicians, artists, scientists, entrepreneurs, NGO heads and social activists. But we love to be surprised. You will need to play nicely with others, and you must be willing to work onsite at least four days a week to make the experience optimal for all. Members of TED’s extended family—conference attendees, past speakers, TED Fellows, TEDx organizers, translators, TED Prize winners, TED-Ed participants—are most definitely eligible, and encouraged to apply. The fall Residency runs from September 10, 2018, until December 14, 2018. TED does not cover travel or living expenses.
