The Basics 基本信息

 

You’ll have to make a few important decisions when applying for a TEDx license. It’s the first step in deciding the kind of experience you’d like to shape for your event.

申请TEDx许可的时候,你需要做出一些重要决定。这是决定你活动体验类型的第一步。

 

Name your event 命名你的活动

All TEDx event names follow the same convention: a name beginning with TEDx, followed by a location-based descriptor such as the name of your city, school, neighborhood, local landmark or street (e.g., TEDxSydney, TEDxThames, TEDxUSC).

所有的TEDx活动名称遵循相同的约定:以TEDx开头,跟着是一个活动所在地的描述,例如城市、学校、街区、地标或街道(例如TEDxSydney, TEDxThames, TEDxUSC)。

Choose a tentative date for your event 为活动选择一个暂定日期

You’ll want to keep two things in mind when picking the date of your event. First, does the date conflict with any other TEDx events in or close to your location? You can find out by searching for TEDx events in your area. Also, does the date give you enough time to plan the event, and does it give your speakers enough time to construct and rehearse their talks? You’ll need a minimum of three months to organize your event after your license is approved. Note that TEDx event plans take at least eight weeks to review and approve — great events aren’t built in a day!

在选择活动日期的时候记住两点。首先,那个日期和活动所在地(或附近)的TEDx活动冲突吗?你可以通过查询附近TEDx活动了解相关信息。另外,这个日期是否让你有足够时间计划活动,并且可以让讲者有时间构建和排练他们的演讲?在许可获批后,你至少需要三个月来组织你的活动。请注意,TEDx活动计划需要至少八周的审核时间——伟大的活动不是在一天之内完成的!

 

Brainstorm some ideas for your program 为你的节目想法做头脑风暴

We want to know more about what you’re interested in including in your event. TEDx events should be multidisciplinary and broad, to address a variety of topics. They should not focus all on one subject area. What are some topics, questions and ideas you’re itching to share with your audience?

我们希望了解更多关于你有意在活动中涵盖的内容。TEDx活动应该是多学科、涉猎广泛的,并且谈论一系列的主题。这些主题不应该仅仅关注于一个学科领域。你计划与观众分享哪些主题、问题或想法呢?

 

Consider example speakers 考虑可能的讲者

Tell us more about what they’re doing that’s great, rather than who they are. Is there someone in your community who has an incredible idea or perspective you think the world should see? Is there a person you know of who is doing amazing work, but is largely unrecognized?

告诉我们这些讲者在哪些领域出色,而不要告诉我们这些讲者是谁。你所在的社区是否有人拥有惊人的想法或观点,你觉得应该让全世界都看到的?你是否认识某人正在从事令人惊奇的事情,但是并没得到广泛认可?

 

Decide which TED Talks you’d like to show 决定你要展示哪些TED Talks

Our application asks which TED Talk videos you’d like to show at your TEDx event. You can change your mind later, but we’d like to know what kind of talks you want to share with your audience.

我们的申请表上将会询问你将在活动中展示哪些TED Talks录像。你可以在之后改变主意,但我们想了解你希望展示给观众什么类型的演讲。

 

Decide on a theme (or don’t!) 决定一个主题(或者不!)

A theme is not a topic, like “medicine,” or “entrepreneurship” but a broader area of exploration, like “Inspired by nature.” You’re not required to decide on one right away.

主题并不是类似于“医药”或是“创业”之类的话题,主题是一个更广阔的探索领域,例如“自然的启示”。你不需要立刻决定主题。

 

Pick your event type 选择活动类型

TEDx events have different “types,” or event categories, and you’ll need to choose one when you apply for a license. You’ll most likely apply for a “Standard” event type. But don’t worry – you’ll learn a lot more about event types in the next section.

TEDx活动有不同的“类型”,或者活动分类。在你申请许可的时候,你需要选择其一。一般来说你会申请“标准”类型活动。但是别担心,你可以在后一章节了解不同的活动类型。
