We will be helping out with CityMac, TedxNexGenAsheville and TedX Asheville this weekend at The Orange Peel in downtown Asheville. The events are sold out, but you can view online on livestream at the following addresses:
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 TEDxNextGenerationAsheville, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDx[name] 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.
