ABOUT VIEWING PARTIES

We’re encouraging individuals, groups and organizations to host viewing parties to watch the LiveStream of TEDxGraceStreetWomen. Hosting a viewing party is your opportunity to rally your community and start conversations, applying the talks to this year’s theme: “Showing Up.”

There will be periodic breaks during TEDxGraceStreetWomen—at those times, the LiveStream will be offline. These breaks are a great opportunity for viewing party hosts to plan activities for their guests. You can lead discussions on the talks or interact with your guests in other creative ways. Contact us at info@tedxgracestreetwomen.com if you are interested in hosting a Viewing Party.

What to do

TEDx Viewing Party Rules

  • Parties must be free of charge to an audience of no more than 100 people.
  • TED approves viewing parties of more than 100 people on a case-by-case basis. If you think your party will attract a crowd larger than 100 guests, contact us and we’ll send TED an inquiry on your behalf.

What time does the conference start?

The live event will begin at 9 AM EST and run until about 1 PM. Once the schedule and speaker order is finalized, we will post it here. Learn more about our scheduled speakers by visiting our speaker page

Who should host a viewing party?

If you are affiliated with an organization, club, publication, or company, you would make a great viewing party host. Your pre-existing network of supporters serves as a great guest list and means of promoting your event. But you don’t have to be an organization or company; anyone with a passion for stories would make a great viewing party host! Individuals are more than welcome to host viewing parties in their homes.

Do I have to show the whole event?

TEDxGraceStreetWomen will be best viewed in its entirety. Because the event is a live webcast, we realize showing the entire conference can prove inconvenient for our hosts on the west coast. If you’re dealing with a significant time difference, don’t worry – you can just show one or two sessions and still register as an official viewing party. We will post all speaker’s talks on our website after the event, but this may take us a few weeks.

Is there a fee associated with hosting an official viewing party?

Official viewing party hosts do not pay any dues or fees to TEDxGraceStreetWomen or TED and showing the webcast is free of charge.
