Because a TEDx experience is participatory, diversity of attendees and speakers is central to any TEDx event.
The TEDxPeachtree Community Partner program was founded to increase the diversity of the TEDxPeachtree audience mix and encourage dialogue among those of different ethnicity, gender and profession.

Dashboard Co-op is an award-winning curatorial venture that activates raw space with immersive art. Founded in 2010 by Courtney Hammond and Beth Malone, Dash has produced eleven exhibitions in vacant properties around Atlanta. Nine of the properties used for these shows have since been leased and now house thriving businesses. The organization has been praised for its revitalization efforts and curatorial vision by WABE, Business Insider, HGTV, ArtsATL, the Atlanta Regional Commission, and others. In 2012, Dash was nationally recognized by the Robert Rauschenberg to receive $30,000 over the next 3 years.
The organization has been a springboard for the careers of 41 artists, including Nikita Gale, Bethany Collins, Nathan Sharratt, and Henry Detweiler. The exhibitions 100,000 Cubicle Hours and Come Inside. Me. were named two of the five key art events in 2012 by the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Dash has appeared on many “Best of Atlanta” lists in leading publications, and, most recently, Hammond and Malone were labeled “People to Watch” by Creative Loafing.
In their free time, Malone is the Coordinator of Teen Programs at the High Museum of Art and Hammond is the Public Art Project Consultant for the City of Atlanta Office of Cultural Affairs.
