The second annual TEDxCharlottesville took place on Nov. 14th 9am to 6pm at the beautiful Paramount Theater on the historic Downtown Mall in Charlottesville, VA. An amazing and diverse lineup of speakers shared their "ideas worth spreading," revolving around the event's theme, "RefleXions." A sold-out crowd of 1040 piled into the Paramount and left inspired after a day of live talks and video TED talks. The audience celebrated the day with an after-party at the Jefferson Theater.
From the outset of the event, the steering committee announced that it would be providing 250 tickets to the community, making the day accessible to many who could otherwise not be able to afford the price of admission. Local student groups, home-schoolers and non-profit groups were able to take advantage of these tickets making TEDx a true community event.
