About the Event

On April 10, 2015 we hosted TEDxRVA : UNCOMMON at the historic Carpenter Theatre at CenterStage.

Uncommon disrupts the common. It unravels old conventions, remembers the forgotten, overlooked and excluded. Uncommon allows us to have different conversations about different moments in different ways.

The speakers this year explored the rare, the extraordinary . . . the uncommon.
