Brilliant Together: The Magic of Creative Collaboration: Elaina Ellis & Emily Peterson at TEDxTacoma

Elaina M. Ellis is a poet based in Seattle. In December 2009, she founded TumbleMe Productions, a vehicle for multi-media and cross-genre collaborations. In January 2010, she quit her day job. Now she full-time writes to worship, to recover, to fight back, to play, to confess, and to make messes. Through workshops, live art events, creative coaching, and page poetry, she invites community members to invest in that which inspires & sustains them. In June 2011, Elaina graduated with an MFA in Creative Writing, and her first book, Write About an Empty Birdcage, was released in the same month from Write Bloody Publishing.Recent creative partnerships have yielded incredible results. Elaina's collaboration with Mae Pictures resulted in a series of short films based on poems about childhood dreams: UP (When I Grow) is available on DVD. Her "creative consultation" for Jewish Voice for Peace catapulted a simple collective writing process into a Young Jewish and Proud Manifesto, which has been read by millions of people across the world. Currently, the Seattle Rock Orchestra is scoring an original libretto set to lyrics by seven poets, curated and directed by Elaina. She has taught and performed poetry in 20 states, and never forgets for a second how lucky she is to do what she loves; for that reason she is currently chasing the great mystery called the happy poem.About TEDx, x = independently organized eventIn the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
