Finding ourselves in a time of considerable social upheaval, TEDxEast organizers recognize this as an opportunity to step back and look at things more critically with our community. With a tightly curated program of 25 ideas, personalities and performances, the organizers have designed a day that takes the TEDxEast experience to a n entirely new level.
“The View from In Here is designed to engage our community,” says Dr. Julianne Wurm, founder and curator of TEDxEast.
“Our event will offer an examination of multiple perspectives - the shades of grey that inhabit all aspects of life.”
TEDxEast brings the spirit of the TED conference to New York City, hosting some of the world's most fascinating thinkers, doers and teachers to inspire attendees to create greater impact with their ideas. And true to the format of the TED conference, TEDxEast presenters will give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes or less. TEDxEast is the first and largest TEDx event in NYC.

WHAT IS TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxEast, where x=independently organized TED event. At our TEDxEast event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. This independent TEDx event is operated under license from TED.
