As we approach the 10 year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina (August 2015), TEDxNewOrleans is a platform to share the story of recovery and resilience of Greater New Orleans. The event gives voice to diverse perspectives on a variety of topics and provides a forum for dialogue about economic and social strategies that have worked, and those that have not.

The event broadens the narrative about Greater New Orleans’ geographic, social, and economic impacts and recovery – and drives insights about successful strategies that may be adopted by other regions. Further, TEDxNewOrleans informs and inspires an exchange of ideas about key post-Katrina themes, including: creative destruction, culture and gentrification, social equity, and other areas of interest.
