Icarus Session presented and inspired around the world by Seth Godin. Register at http://www.meetup.com/People-Like-Us-SW-Ontario/events/94820502/.
The short version: ten or fifty or a hundred people come together and follow the simple rules of the Icarus Session, outlined below.
You meet, connect, support and then go back into the world, ready to make a ruckus.
The rules are simple:
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.”
You can attend a session without presenting, of course.
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.
The assignment: Tell the group about your art.
What have you created? What frightened you? What matters?
Not a pitch. An act of brave vulnerability.
I made this.
It scared me.
This might not work.
Here’s how it changed me.
What do you think?
