TEDxCharleston Announces Call for Speakers and Performers for 2014 Event
9/11/2013 2:59:02 PM


CHARLESTON, SC - TEDxCharleston organizers announced today that they are accepting speaker and performer applications now through October 22 for the 2014 event, which will take place in the spring timeframe. With a theme of Ripple Effect, chosen speakers are expected to inspire with ideas that are creating a lasting, ongoing effect in areas such as the environment, education, parenting, philanthropy, technology, arts, food, fashion, healthcare and more.

"We are actively looking for change agents that can share with our TEDxCharleston audience ideas having a profound and ever-expanding impact. Even the smallest ideas and actions can have exponential impact on our community and our world, so we look forward to hearing what unheard voices in the Lowcountry have to say," said Edith Howle, curator of TEDxCharleston. "If you know people who have great ideas that are creating lasting change in our community, please encourage them to apply. Help us tap into the many voices, ideas and talents that make up this community, but might not be well known."

More information regarding speaker and performer submissions and the 2014 event is available at The location and date of the event will be announced soon.

"Our first event was very well received here in the Lowcountry, and we look forward to greatly expanding the audience and number of attendees next year, sharing TEDxCharleston with as many people as possible," said Howle.

Videos from the inaugural TEDxCharleston held at PURE Theater in downtown Charleston on May 15, 2013, are now online for viewing. Relive the inspiring talks and performances at
