Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 13, 2014
Following the success of last year’s sold out event, the TEDxPeachtree organizing committee is pleased to announce that the 2014 event will return to the historic Buckhead Theatre and will be held on Friday, October 17th.
The day-long immersive experience is designed to inform, inspire and invigorate. Curated around the theme Illuminate, the programming will feature six to 18 minute presentations by local and regional change agents and those at the forefront of initiatives that are changing lives and communities. In the spirit of TEDx, presenters and performers will hail from a broad spectrum of disciplines – science, design, entertainment, engineering, medicine, etc.

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, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. 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.
TEDxPeachtree, a 501(c)3 organization, seeks to develop and share a TED-like experience on a regional level by bringing together inspirational leaders, innovators, artists and entertainers in metro Atlanta. TEDxPeachtree is a community effort led by an all-volunteer group of passionate individuals hailing from an eclectic mix of professions.

TED is a non-profit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 26 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. AT TED, the world’s leading thinkers and doers are asked to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes. Talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Benoit Mandelbrot, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iwaela, Isabel Allende and former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Two major TED events are held each year: The TED Conference takes place every spring in Long Beach, California (along with a parallel conference, TEDActive, in Palm Springs), and TEDGlobal is held each summer in Edinburgh, Scotland.
