Our third TEDxCharleston was Chaos, Creativity, and Community at its finest

During this year's TEDxCharleston, we heard from wonderfully engaging and inspiring speakers, performers, dreamers. We can't even begin to whittle down our favorites. But the good news is, we can all revisit them and listen again, then share the talks with our friends who weren't able to be there. Videos will be posted on this website in the next weeks. Stay tuned!

Watch for the TED survey

If you attended this year’s event, PLEASE take two minutes to complete the online survey that will soon be sent to you from TED. We value your input and will use your constructive feedback to improve and enrich future events.

Check out the photos

Be sure to check out the terrific photos (on Facebook , Instagram, and Flickr) from our talented photographers who captured the TEDxCharleston magic in pictures.

Please also share your own pictures and most inspiring take-aways on your personal social media channels. We hope the lively conversation continues on Facebook and Twitter for weeks and months to come. Follow #TEDxCharleston and #embracechaos on Twitter and Instagram.

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.

Thank you volunteers, sponsors and presenters!

We continue to be amazed at the hard work and dedication of so many. And the fabulous support of sponsors. It all came together to create an unforgettable experience. Our theme aside, an event like this is like courting chaos, but our team had it under control, thanks to a year of planning and detail-oriented execution!!
