FED – an accessible alternative to TED comes to Edinburgh

9th July 2011, 1.30pm
Inspace, 1 Crichton Street, Edinburgh EH8 9AB

Can humans live sustainably? Can creative thinking be nurtured? What ideas are worth nurturing and sustaining? Realpolitik and Bella Caledonia present ‘FED – Ideas Worth Sustaining’, a one-day program of talks, discussions, and, most importantly, ideas. 

FED takes its cue from July’s TEDGlobal conference – but while TED costs an eye-watering £4,000 to attend, FED is a place of assembly genuinely open to all. Featuring presentations from creative thinkers and practitioners. Speakers include Gerry Hassan, Robin McAlpine, Lorna Waite and Kevan Shaw. There will also be an opportunity for the public to present ideas.

Want to help a Scottish charity and get a £10 Amazon voucher?

We’ll be carrying out some user-experience testing on an arts charity website soon and we need your help. If you’re over 18, can travel to Edinburgh or Glasgow and have 45 mins to spare  then we’d love to hear from you. Ideally we’re looking for people who don’t have a web/design background and you don’t need to know anything about the arts.

We’ll give you a few simple tasks to complete on the site and we’ll ask you your opinion on elements of the site as we go along. What you think about the website matters to us and by giving up 45 minutes of your time you’ll be helping the charity provide an even better service (we’ll be able to tell you who they are when you get in touch). Oh and did I mention there’s a £10 Amazon voucher in it for those who take part.

We’ll set a date/time that suits you – if you’re interested in taking part or simply want to find out more then get in touch: ross[@]thirdsectorlab.co.uk or @ThirdSectorLab or leave a comment below.
