TEDxCharleston draws nearly 1,000 in person participants each year, plus an extensive on-line following, and is a part of the renowned ‘TED Talks’ which provides Charleston residents with an exclusive platform to share ideas worth spreading.

The 2023 theme is RE-EMERGE. Following an unprecedented time over the last three years, we are all slowly but surely re-emerging to a brave new world, fraught with new challenges and risks, but full of opportunities. Creativity, innovation and thoughtfulness are all needed to deal with this new reality. An exciting lineup of speakers and performers will explore many important and inspiring ideas at the 2023 TEDxCharleston event, appropriately themed “Re-Emerge.” Stay tuned – 2023 Speakers and Performers to be announced soon!

TEDxCharleston is thrilled to follow up a successful 2022 event where three of the presenters in 2022 were selected and distributed to the global TED network, including Sam Norton, Karen Perlmutter, and Dr. John Rhodes.

Founded in 1984, TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, and Design, and the inspiring, innovative, and important research, ideas, and disciplines that shape and connect our world for the better.

TEDxCharleston is committed to representing the Charleston community with authenticity and is inclusive of all speakers and attendees. The impact that the ideas emanating from the TEDxCharleston stage has made in our community is a result of the diversity of our speakers and their ideas, and we provide equal opportunity and consideration for all applicants as long as they follow the application criteria.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In 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, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. 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.)

About TED
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading, often in the form of short talks delivered by leading thinkers and doers. Many of these talks are given at TED conferences, including our annual gathering in Vancouver, as well as TEDWomen, intimate TED Salons and thousands of independently organized TEDx events around the world. Videos of these talks are made available, free, on and other platforms. Audio versions of the talks from TED2019 will also be published to TED’s podcast TED Talks Daily, available on Apple Podcasts and all other podcast platforms.

TED’s open and free initiatives for spreading ideas include, where new TED Talk videos are posted daily; TEDx, which licenses thousands of individuals and groups to host local, self-organized TED-style events around the world; the TED Fellows program, which selects innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities; the Audacious Project, which surfaces and funds critical ideas that have the potential to impact millions of lives; TEDSummit, which gathers the most engaged members of the global TED community for brainstorms, discussions, performances, workshops and an eclectic program of mainstage talks; and the educational initiativeTED-Ed. TED also has a library of original podcasts, including The TED Interview with Chris Anderson, Sincerely, X, and one of Apple Podcasts’ most downloaded new shows of 2018, WorkLife with Adam Grant.
