Speaker and Performer Applications for 2015 Are Closed!

Thank you for the incredible response! We received over 170 applications which our Speaker/Performer Selection Committee members are now reviewing to find the most interesting and inspiring ideas to present at TEDxCharleston 2015.  The committee has a tough job -- there are so many worthy applicants -- but that means TEDxCharleston will be better than ever.  So take a deep breath, and get ready to EMBRACE CHAOS!

Stay tuned for our Save the Date announcement in early January!

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that 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 will 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.
