CURATOR'S STATEMENT The past year has been an eventful and exciting time for me as a freshman TEDx producer. Launching our first live conference in November, attending the TED Active simulcast with hundreds of other TEDx Organizers and Tedsters from around the world for my birthday in February, partnering with Greenfield Community College to offer TED Ed training to educators in May and a full day simulcast of the TED Global conference in June -- and this, our second live conference - has kept me busy. My travels for work and pleasure have taken me across the country to visit old friends, family and haunts, as well as fabulous new people, places and culture. What a wonderful world we live in! I enjoy my time away immensely. Interestingly, this time away brings to the forefront of my awareness, the appreciation I have for this special place I have called home for the past 13 years. I have curated and staged more than two dozen speakers, adventure guides, filmmakers and artists today so they may show you a sliver of why they love this place where we live. Their work, stories and passion remind me of my own values. The friendships I have formed while working with them and the other dedicated volunteers on this show, and the relationships I hope to form with you, are precious to me. This is why I volunteer my time to our community in this way. I hope you enjoy hearing about the ideas your neighbors - on, behind and in front of the stage -- have to share with you, whether you agree with them or not. A cultured mind is an open mind. Thank you all for your energy, your inquisitiveness and your support through this grand experiment. Stacy Kontrabecki 12 October 2013 www.TEDxShelburneFalls.com
