On Saturday, March 21st, 2015, TEDxNashville will host its sixth annual event, TEDxNashville 2015, at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center. Distinguished leaders in technology, entertainment, design, science, art, education, government, public policy, healthcare and other areas will share their remarkable thoughts and ideas focused on creating positive changes in our society.

The leadership team of TEDxNashville comprises successful entrepreneurs, artists, technologists, communication professionals, philanthropists and PhDs. Building on the highly successful 2010 event titled "Art + Science: The Future of Health", the 2011 event "A Sense of Wonder,” the sold out 2012 event "Impact — Making A Difference", the sold out "TEDxNashville 2013 — NEXT", and the sold out TEDxNashville 2014, this team is establishing a program that will inspire our community to engage in innovation for social change and serve as the foundation for a strong, ongoing TEDx presence in Middle Tennessee.Building on the highly successful 2010 event titled "Art + Science: The Future of Health" and the 2011 event "A Sense of Wonder,” this team is establishing a program that will inspire our community to engage in innovation for social change and serve as the foundation for a strong, ongoing TEDx presence in Middle Tennessee.

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.

The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
