Describe your work in 6 words (or less):
East meeting west through political cinema.

Describe one relationship you’ve made because of the Fellows program:

How is your life different today because of the program?:
Access to people and places that have made a huge difference to my work.

Describe the program in three words:

Most surreal TED conference moment?:

Why would you recommend the program?:

Describe your work in 6 words (or less):
I make people feel through stories.

Describe one relationship you’ve made because of the Fellows program:
J. Adam Huggins, a fellow Fellow and I were connected by the Fellowship team for having similar creative sensibilities in our work. Well, we discovered that those sensibilities spilled into every aspect of our lives and we became inseparable, living a semi-nomadic, joyfully uncertain life while creating, writing and co-organizing a TEDx conference in Brazil. Our greatest collaboration is Tian Huggins, a small human being of two years.

How is your life different today because of the program?:
No longer an armchair warrior, I’ve unlearned, absolved cynicism and came to see an absolute possibility and need to instigate massive shift.

Describe the program in three words:
Surpass your potential.

Most surreal TED conference moment?:
Spontaneously drawing a two-headed monster with architect Mitchell Joachim and musician Susie Ibarra while our hands were intertwined and then dancing with the incredible Saeed Taji Farouky and Daniel Zoughbie, forming three degrees of Shleparation, as Saeed coined it, a full Jewish / Palestinian spectrum.

Why would you recommend the program?:
If you have a deep desire to change the world and you no longer want to be inhibited by your own, misperceived limitations, become a TED Fellow.

Application tip?:
It is better to show your passionate, lunatic side than keeping it sensible.

Why would you recommend the program?:
It will shift your paradigms while connecting you to the people who can help your dreams come true, because they share them.

See if you can think of yourself as having a strong track record of success but are at the cusp of something huge–what could that something be?

TED selecteert elk jaar een groep van 40 Fellows en nodigt hen uit voor een afzonderlijke Fellows-conferentie gekoppeld aan TED of TEDGlobal. De Fellows-conferentie biedt cursussen voor het ontwikkelen van vaardigheden en de kans om hun werk aan de TED-gemeenschap voor te stellen in een podiumpresentatie die gefilmd wordt en in aanmerking komt voor TED.com. Op het einde van het fellowship-jaar selecteert TED tien Fellows die deelnemen aan een verlengd tweejarig Senior Fellowship dat hen naar vijf opeenvolgende conferenties brengt.

 

TED richt zich vooral op het aantrekken van kandidaten die leven of werken in vijf delen van de wereld: de regio Azië-Pacific, Afrika, de Caraïben, Latijns-Amerika en het Midden-Oosten, maar kandidaten uit de hele wereld komen in aanmerking. TED zoekt opmerkelijke denkers en doeners die blijk hebben gegeven van ongewone verwezenlijkingen, uitzonderlijke moed, morele verbeelding en het potentieel om positieve verandering tot stand te brengen in hun domein – onder meer in technologie, amusement,
