Speaker Recommended Media for "A Sense of Place"

What place are you from? What defines a place? What is the history and nature of the places you most love and most dislike? What can you do to make the places you live, work and play better? Join us at the 2013 TEDxShelburneFalls conference to talk about and hear how your neighbors are answering these questions. A day of dialog, exploration and action awaits.

Tickets for the live event in Memorial Hall will be available for sale starting 12 am, Thursday August 28. Your full-conference ticket includes entry to both sessions and the post-party, as well as one optional pre-conference AM Adventure and longer Sunday Adventures. Lunch is not provided. General seating. $41.

New this year for full-conference attendees are optional pre & post conference Adventures. See Adventure descriptions for AM & Sunday Adventure details and directions. Registering early ensures your best choice for attendance at your preferred Adventure as space is very limited for these outings.

Free admission to the live simulcast at the nearby Masonic Hall/Shelburne Falls Senior Center or Mocha Mayas is also available as an alternative, but does not include Adventures. No registration is required for the simulcast and seating is first come, first serve.


9-11 am Pre-Conference AM Adventures are concurrent sessions held in the greater Shelburne Falls area. Transportation is not provided to adventures. Very limited availability, so register early for one AM Adventure/pp only.
