TED has launched the TEDinArabic initiative dedicated to providing a global platform for thinkers, researchers, artists, change-makers across the Arabic-speaking world. In partnership with the Qatar Foundation, the program will feature a global ideas search, regional events and a two-day flagship event in Doha, Qatar featuring original TED Talks, all in Arabic.
The TEDinArabic curator is responsible for selecting and working with all TEDinArabic speakers to develop new TED Talks in Arabic over the course of the project. This includes working with speakers spread across regional events, and a TEDinArabic flagship event scheduled to take place in Doha in early 2022. The ideal candidate for this position should have a deep understanding of the Arabic culture, the different dialects and an excellent command of the modern standard Arabic. This is a contract position.
