This inspired Meetups in Sydney
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.
If you would like to speak please fill in your detail here https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dHA5Q...
The speaking order will be by random drawing on the day.
This is not an opportunity to sell. It is about you and your art.
It is about the thing that really matter to you.
