What is TEDx?

TED created the TEDx program in the spirit of ideas worth spreading. TEDx is a far-reaching program of local, self-organized events happening on a global scale. These events bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxCharleston, where x = independently organized TED event. At our event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

Learn more about the TEDx program!

Thank you!
