Message from The Icarus Sessions (organized by Seth Godin):

The Icarus Sessions are a challenging new way to bring your art forward. Not to make a sales pitch, not to get customers or patrons, but to find the courage to stand up and say, "here, I made this."

A presentation at an Icarus Session is 140 seconds long. You can go shorter, but not a second longer. You can use slides, or handouts, or even better, just bring your enthusiasm. Videotape it if you like.

The assignment: Tell the group about your art. What have you created? What frightened you? What matters?

Check out the principles of the Icarus Session before you come: http://www.squidoo.com/IcarusSession and be sure to contact the organizer if you're hoping to speak.

    343 towns, villages and cities are signed up so far for the first Icarus Session.

    The challenge now is for every person who is signed up to find two friends or colleagues to sign up as well... time to whisper and get the word out.
