We are filming the setup of the first TEDxRVA here in Richmond Va. This is day one as Commonwealth Event Company installs the carpet in this very big room!

Monday, March 18, 2013 and the big screen, lights, projector and curtains all got installed today!

Tuesday, March 19, 2013 found us filming T & B Equipment Company installing the scaffolding for the seating. As the day went on its amazing how things are coming together and room seems to be getting smaller!

Watch a time lapse as Ed Trask paints the TEDxRVA logo near the entrance of the building.

This time lapse video shows day four and five setting up the last portion of the bleachers and other last minute details and some footage from the morning of the show until the start time!

MORE FROM TEDxRVA.com/about:
A creative renaissance is transforming Richmond into an epicenter of innovation and creativity. On March 22, 2013, the inaugural TEDxRVA will bring the concept CREATE into an open forum where audience and speakers together will engage in a symbiotic process of inspiration and creation. Beside the magnificent James River in this historic city, the event takes place in The Power Plant, a building which housed the massive turbines that powered the first street cars in the United States.

As TEDxRVA unfolds, ideas will meld with action, producing a showcase of what is possible when community comes together. Empty spaces will function as blank canvases for audience engagement and spontaneous creative response. The result will be an experience reflective of, and inspired by, the dynamic topics presented by our curated line-up of innovative creatives, storytellers, entrepreneurs and community leaders. Conversations will create new connections and build frameworks for transitioning thoughts to tangible reality.

Creation is not a passive process – this event is a call to action. In embracing the spirit of TED and “ideas worth spreading,” TEDxRVA will challenge all who are involved to redefine themselves as innovators and doers.
