FreSh (Freedom of Sharing). FreSh merupakan ajang diskusi, kumpul-kumpul, networking, sharing ilmu antara kita semua yang hidup dalam industri kreatif.

Forum berbagi ide ini diharapkan akan terus berlangsung reguler sehingga akan semakin membuka wawasan/insight kita dalam dunia kreatif. Mudah-mudahan kita bisa saling tahu trend apa yang kini populer, hambatan apa yang dihadapi, dan solusi apa untuk mengatasinya.

Siapa saja, baik itu desainer, programmer, animator, marketing, advertising, arsitek, pengusaha online, musisi, filmis, penulis, dan profesi lainnya bisa ikut berpartisipasi dalam forum ini. Tentunya, dengan harapan setiap pesertanya bisa berinisiatif menyampaikan gagasan, solusi, ataupun sekedar berbagi ilmu baru.

PECHA KUCHA

http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=18422604367 (Bandung)

Pecha Kucha is a networking event, seeking to bring together creative minds from all fields. At one Pecha Kucha Night, up to 14 speakers present their work in the typical Pecha Kucha format: each person is allowed to show only 20 images, each image lasts for 20 seconds.

The result is a furiously fast-paced, fun row of presentations, at 6:40 min per speaker. This may seem short – but it has proven to be just the right time to offer insight into one’s work and to make a point!

TEDx Jakarta

http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=66381544606

TED is an annual event where some of the world’s leading thinkers and doers are invited to share what they are most passionate about. “TED” stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design — three broad subject areas that are, collectively, shaping our future. And in fact, the event is broader still, showcasing ideas that matter in any discipline. Attendees have called it “the ultimate brain spa” and “a four-day journey into the future.” The diverse audience — CEOs, scientists, creatives, philanthropists — is almost as extraordinary as the speakers, who have included Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Frank Gehry, Paul Simon, Sir Richard Branson, Philippe Starck and Bono.

TED was first held in Monterey, California, in 1984. In 2001, Chris Anderson’s Sapling Foundation acquired TED from its founder, Richard Saul Wurman. In recent years, TED has expanded to include an international conference, TEDGlobal; media initiatives, including TED Talks and TED.com; and the TED Prize. TED2010, “What the world Needs Now,” will be held Feb 9-13, 2010, in Long Beach, California, with a simulcast event in Palm Springs, California. TEDGlobal 2009, “The Substance of Things Not Seen,” will be held July 21-24, 2009, in Oxford, UK and TEDIndia will be held in November 2009.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxJakarta, where x=independently organized TED event. At our TEDxJakarta event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.
