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.

    Great group tonight at CoWork Jax and kudos to One Spark Jacksonville for sponsoring refreshments! There were presentations from a range of creative people, including illustration, photography, graphic design and marketing. We really enjoyed our time together and look forward to doing it again.

    CoWork Jax is letting us use their space and our Meetup coincides with ArtWalk, so there will be lots of activity downtown that night. We are spreading the word with the CoWork Jax members and our network, so we hope to have a good group. Look forward to seeing you there!

    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.
