    The institute behind TEDxDirigo, Treehouse Institute, asked me to create a Photo Booth, a Vine Stream, and still images at the event in Brunswick in 2013. Presenters and participants sat for a picture. I took all the still images created and stitched them together and had a BeatBox performer, Chas Lester, freestyle over the running stop motion video.

      • Maine Ideas Worth Spreading: TEDxDirigo and the Treehouse Institute ACE 2-15-13

        In 2010, Adam Burk, Michael “Gil” Gilroy, Janice O’Rourke, and many other talented people created TEDxDirigo and brought the powerful TED Talk and conference format to Maine. TEDxDirigo was Maine’s first TEDx event, and since then Adam, the team, and their partners have produced five full-day events, including most recently another first – TEDxYouth@CEHS. Nearly 1,500 people have attended these live events, more than 25,000 people in Maine have watched them online, and over 500,000 people have watched globally. These events have created new social capital; increased the flow of talent to and across the state; and helped to develop new support, financial and otherwise, for ideas presented. While very successful by most measures, there has been a constant question after these events, “what happens next?” Over the past two years, Adam and Gil have delved deeply into this question. They read the latest on creativity and innovation; visited with Harvard’s iLab, design firms such as Continuum, and the Business Innovation Factory; asked for more insights from the TEDxDirigo community; and engaged the worldwide TED network at TEDGlobal in Scotland, at TEDxSummit in Qatar, and online. This resulted in the formation of the Treehouse Institute, a nonprofit with a mission to connect people, places, and ideas, to fuel innovations that foster more resilient and prosperous communities. Treehouse will sustain and produce TEDxDirigo – and do more. Leaders in innovation, in Maine and across the world, are calling for a new paradigm. A model that leverages expertise, but also creates processes and spaces where serendipity and rigor are accelerated. A paradigm where experimentation, risk, and action are valued; where enterprises serve ambitions, such as excellent user experience, social innovation, and ecological regeneration. The Treehouse Institute is this new model and mindset. Through its events, spaces, and networks, Treehouse cultivates a new level of problem-solving capacity in Maine. Treehouse’s strategy includes: 1. Create physical spaces for everyday collaborative creativity 2. Host dynamic events for multidisciplinary audiences 3. Develop youth initiatives through an emergent design strategy 4. Introduce and “democratize” new knowledge sets, particularly systems and design thinking. About Adam Burk Adam is a social innovator and self-coined “cultural architect.” His life and work are dedicated to living well in his place and with others. He creates spaces – physical and programmatic – that raise the level of resilience and virtue in a community. These spaces have included restorative justice programs for homeless youth, sustainability programs for social service agencies, farm to school programs for public schools, and TEDxDirigo. Adam's newest endeavor is the Treehouse Institute. Adam has formal degrees in psychology, history, and education. He is a registered Maine wilderness guide, and holds various certifications. In 2011, Adam was selected by MaineToday Media as one of “Forty Under 40 emerging leaders to watch.” He lives in Cape Elizabeth with his wife Molly and two dogs. He and Molly are expecting their first child in April. He likes talking about his emerging adventure in fatherhood, as well as mushrooms and design thinking.
