DATE CHANGE!!! Wednesday, MAY 15
LOCATION HELMS DESIGN CENTER
aN EVENING OF SHORT TALKS, CONVERSATION, COMMUNITY, AND DINNER
Textile Slam! is an opportunity for friendly conversation and networking, featuring a rotating slate of presenters, each of whom will deliver an informal six-minute (or less) presentation.
We’ll invite members, artists, designers, architects, educators, and all-around neat thinkers to talk about their work, ideas that interest them, or projects they are exploring.
We envision the Slam! as a casual, community, conversation-oriented event.
SAVE THE DATES!
2019 Textile Slams will be held Tuesdays: February 26, May 15, and October 29.
Cocktails, dinner, and program: $45 members; $60 non-members; students + concessions $25
Although there is no application fee to present; all attendees and presenters must purchase a ticket for the Slam!
Anyone may apply to present (members, non-members, artists, entrepreneurs, etc.)
Your presentation (“preso”) must be limited to 6 minutes or less – there will be no overs, please.
If your preso is digital it must be in PowerPoint and timed to 6 minutes. We ask you to transmit the file to us no later than Sunday night before the event, so we can queue it up. We will not be able to spend our evening solving technical problems.
You may do a straight chat with no slides, or a show-and-tell, a brief demo, or other similar, aka simple, presentation. As noted above, this is an informal event – we do not have the capability to manage intensive productions.
Subject Matter: If your talk is likely to be of interest to people working in the arts, design, or creative fields, your subject is fair game. You can present research, pitch an upcoming exhibit, practice your public speaking, showcase an idea that interests you, show-and tell-about a new product or process you like, discovered, or want more information about. All we ask is that you pique our curiosity, delight us, or educate us.
