Grants:TPS/Netha Hussain/TED-Active 2015/Report

Event name


TED-Active 2015, held in Whistler, Canada from 15-21 March 2015.

Participant connections


The participants of TED-Active were super-awesome. I got to hang around with 12 translators of the Open Translation Project (OTP) during most of the time, but I also met event organizers, TED fellows and staff members of TED. I conducted a small workshop for which around 40 people registered, but only one person attended.


Option 1: Shared Experience: What is one way you shared something from your experience with your community (either locally or globally), after the event?
Add a link here to a blog post or newsletter you wrote about your participation afterwards, or to a meet-up you organized to share your experience with your local community.
Option 2: Learning Pattern: What is one useful learning pattern you can share with the Wikimedia movement?
Add a link to a learning pattern - either a new pattern you created with insights from your participation, or an existing pattern to which you added your endorsement and some significant new "considerations" or “examples” from your experience.
Option 3: New Creation: What was one useful outcome of the event for the Wikimedia movement?
Add a link to something new that was created as a result of your participation in this event (for example, you might link to a new tool that you and your co-participants made as a result of attending this event, or to a set of articles that the participants in your workshop created at the event).

Amount left over


After the event, at least 50% of the merchandise (stickers, lapel pins and pens) remained undistributed. I am planning to use the left over goodies for local events with WMF's permission to do so.
