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.
We are excited to be a part of Asheville’s very own independant TED event, TEDxAsheville. Tonight at 7pm, people will come from all over the region to listen to some of Asheville’s most influentional speakers and performers. Tonight’s Line-up includes:
2009 TEDxAsheville Speaker Lineup:
UNC Asheville professor of environmental studies
Climate scientist, the Sustainability Institute
Media artist, the Elumenati
Buddhist minister and director of Asheville’s Center for End-of-Life Transitions

In addition to our speaker lineup, TEDxAsheville will feature several Asheville performers, intermission entertainment, non-profit tables, a parking lot full of demos, displays and performances PLUS a few special surprises.
We have been seeking a light to shine on our local talent and TEDx has provided us with a light and platform. -Jose Ibarra, Co-Founder TEDxAsheville
