Our 2014 Videos

……more coming soon!!

We were highly interactive this year!

More to come soon....

This year we really wanted to figure out how to make an impact on the community so we tried out a few things.  Livegoode launched their first campaign called the “Carbon Footprint Challenge.”  Crowdfund UP created the first ever TEDxAmericasFinestCity Award.  One project chosen via a live poll at the event to be awarded a free spot at Connected Dreamers next crowdfunding xcellerator workshop. Lastly – and what I thought was the very very best part – was our 30 minute challenge.  In 30 minutes 70 people self-organized into teams of 6-8, tweeted a solution proposal to a problem statement, explained why the solution would be powerful to the organization AND created an execution/promotional plan.  IT was AWESOME.  More to come on that shortly! Thank you for attending!   ~Patricia Stitson, Co-Organizer/Curator/Producer

About TEDx

In The spirit of Ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxAFC, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxAFC event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
