Let’s keep it going.

TEDxAshevilleSalon | THIS MONDAY, January 26th : Altamont Theatre

Welcome to TEDxAsheville

Our event is over; however, TEDxAshevilleSalon is happening! Want more? The aim of this year’s event, was authenticity – at the most basic levels. There was no pomp and circumstance to the event; we created conversation centered around great ideas worth spreading here in our city. At TEDxAsheville, the speakers and the audience members were equally brilliant, involved and invested in our community. So, we continue the dialogue this Monday with a free Salon hosted by Altamont Theatre.

TEDxAsheville 2015 was our fifth independently organized TED event in Asheville. It was a return for the first time since 2012. For this event we shared the incredible work of the creators, movers, doers, and active participants of the greater Asheville area. We put together TEDxAsheville in a short time frame to ‘warm up’ the Asheville area to creative, innovative, and community collaborative events while creating a radically different experience that deviates from our traditional style of event.

This year’s TEDxAsheville was intimate and immersive; an up-close-and-personal conference experience—at the intersection of science, art, performance and business—engaging Asheville with presentations that exposed real connections between people. We were inspired, engaged and transformed. Let’s keep it going – TEDxAsheville Salon is meeting to watch a prerecorded official TED Talk to spark deep discussion and connection at a local level.
