We made big ideas a trending topic 

TEDxSomerville is an independent TEDx event produced by a passionate group of volunteers dedicated to "ideas worth spreading." For 2014 the theme was "Movement" and a diverse group of speakers, artists, and performers (including Amanda Palmer) engaged in a day-long exploration of creativity of ideas hosted by Brooklyn Boulders Somerville

We utilized Facebook, Twitter, and a Tumblr blog to engage and excite the community before during, and after this successful, sold-out event. All day long attendees, including press from local and national media outlets as well as the Mayor of Somerville, joined in the discussion on Twitter, where #TEDxVille became a trending topic!

We merged two different worlds by getting everyone in the same room, er, gallery 

In the Paint: A Celebration of Art and Basketball was a multi-media basketball art show presented by Voltage Coffee and Art in Kendall Square, Cambridge and blog Double Scribble. Originally conceived of as a community building experience as much as an event or art show, the opening night celebration focused on pulling in various community stakeholders and curious members of the public around a central, unifying theme. Sponsors included local foodie favorites Grillos Pickles and Downeast Cider. The original opening night celebration sold out (over 100 tickets) and the rescheduled opening sold out once again (in under five hours!).

We pulled off a celebration that was part fundraiser, part night of epic entertainment

On Saturday, March 1, 2014 Boston got together to celebrate the influences that put us on the map and continue to inspire buzz around the world (or at least the internet): sports, academics, music, comedy, art, philanthropy and entrepreneurship. Dubbed The Nightcap, this first annual event benefitted the Rock On Foundation- a 501(c)3 nonprofit founded by former UMass basketball player, Luke Bonner, and his brother Matt of the San Antonio Spurs.

Hosted by veteran music destination Church of Boston, The Nightcap kicked off with a Connect Four tournament sponsored including Local Celebrity Competitors James DiSabatino (proprietor of Roxy’s Grilled Cheese and former contestant on Food Network’s The Great Food Truck Race), TJ Connelly (Boston Red Sox DJ and founder of onthebar), and Irene Li (chef and co-founder of Mei Mei). Comedians Hari KondaboluGregg Gethard and Aaron Hertzog of the Holding Court Podcast, and Shaun Bedgood performed and the evening ended with music by DJ Vid Kid and Big Digits. A pop-up “souvenir shop” featured Grillos Pickles and affordable works from local artists including Aaron DanaAndrew Lorge,  and, in partnership with Turning ArtJennifer Carland and Regina Valuzzi. In short: a night of playing, laughing, and dancing.

We staged a massive pop-up art gallery... to prove we could

The Foundry Equation was a unique event: a pop-up art gallery and community celebration conceived and executed by a diverse group of organizers in a little over two weeks! The Foundry Equation featured both contemporary and children's art while showcasing the potential of a neighborhood landmark- the historic Foundry building at 101 Rogers Street (at the crossing of Kendall Square and East Cambridge). On Saturday, June 22, 2013 over thirty artists "explored the connection of past + future, steel + concrete, art +music, kids + adults, and residential + industrial to illustrate what 10,000 square feet of space could mean for the local creative community." The event was a resounding success, with over 500 participants (!!) and great enthusiasm for the future of this unique initiative.

We raised the profile of side hustles and female entrepreneurs in Boston

On Wednesday, June 25 Boston's young female entrepreneurs demonstrated the art of the "side hustle," passion projects pursued alongside a full time job, in an event that highlighted the importance of these projects as a testing ground of ideas and experiential learning opportunities outside one's 9-5. Presented by Young Women in Digital (YWD), a group of more than 300 Boston-area young professionals in the digital marketing world, "What's Your Side Hustle" was a sold-out event gathering female entrepreneurs for a night of advice from expert panelists, business pitches from peers getting their hustle on, and community building.

Women in the Boston area dreaming of pursuing a creative consulting business, a freelance venture, or a passion project were invited to apply for the "Side Hustle Scholarship" and four finalists were selected to pitch their side hustle to a panel of creative, entrepreneurial women including Siobhan Dullea, Chief Client Strategist at Communispace; Lauren Joseph, Program Manager at The Grommet; Jackie Schon, Creative Director and Co-Founder of The Paint Bar; and Elyssa Hill, UX/UI Designer at WeSpire.
