PRESENTATIONS

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.

This sounds like a hoot, right? Please apply with the link to the right, and let’s make this happen!

THE PROGRAM

You asked for more events to gather as a group, share ideas, and be inspired. Our response: TEXTILE SLAM!

Textile Slam! is our semi-regular 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. (See left for more info about the presentations.)

We envision the Slam! as a casual, community, conversation-oriented event.

2019 Textile Slams will be held Tuesdays, Feb 26, May 14, and October 29. SAVE THE DATES!

Cocktails, dinner, and program: $45 members; $60 non-members; students $25

Although there is no application fee to present; all attendees and presenters must purchase a ticket for the Slam!
