TEDX CHARLOTTESVILLE RETURNS NOVEMBER 13
THE PARAMOUNT THEATER
TICKETS ON SALE THIS FRIDAY, JULY 10 AT 10AM
CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA – (July 7, 2015) – TEDxCharlottesville and Starr Hill Presents, in partnership with the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation, will host the TEDx event “What If…” at The Paramount Theater in Charlottesville, Va., on Friday, November 13, 2015. Following the success of sell-out events in 2013 and 2014, the all-volunteer committee is prepared to present another dynamic program designed to inspire the community to open up to the possibility of “What If…”
The focus on “What If…” will encourage consideration of how the world would look different when we suspend our judgment. The core of age-old questions asked by explorers (“What if the world isn’t flat?”), scientists (“What would happen if you could split an atom?”), and artists at the start of every new piece of work, “What If…” inspires new thinking, demands introspection, and challenges the status quo. The conference will include a wide array of speakers and performers, with more to be announced throughout the summer.
“Though from many different backgrounds and fields of work, what unites our 2015 speakers is their passion,” said TEDx Charlottesville committee member Chris Farina. “This passion will be shared with our Charlottesville audience, providing true inspiration as we contemplate our world and its possibilities.”
Initial speakers include:

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, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. 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. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
