FAQ's

What is TEDxAtlanta?

An annual independently organized conference operating under license from TED. In 2018, TEDxPeachtree and TEDxAtlanta merged to become the new TEDxAtlanta. Both were founded in 2009 and are among the first TEDx groups to host a TEDx event that year.

The new TEDxAtlanta’s 2019 conference will be held on March 15, 2019 at the Rialto Center for the Arts.


Who is behind TEDxAtlanta?

TEDxAtlanta is a Georgia non-profit that is organized by an all-volunteer team.


How can I volunteer?

Volunteers are the backbone of any community based event. Volunteers tend to be people who are as passionate as we are about ideas worth spreading. We are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help bring TEDxAtlanta to life. If you’re interested in helping out, we’d love to hear from you.

TEDxAtlanta is one of more than 2,900 TEDx groups across the globe. The conference is an immersive one-day experience comprised of the official spoken program and extended networking breaks in between speaker sessions. Attendees are encouraged to converse with conference speakers during breaks, get to know new people and explore new ideas and perspectives throughout the day.


Finally, in the spirit of TED, talks are non-commercial and non-partisan in nature. Attendees are expected to stay the entire duration of the conference.


Wear clothes, but rock whatever feels right. Business casual, jeans and a t, or ball gown. All great options! Attendees of the creative persuasion are encouraged to dress to express.
