Let our seasoned facilitators  guid you at this week's salon based on a curated pre-recorded TED Talks. Our salons explore a specific theme for discussion, and after screening the talk, you are invited to share in a lively discussion to investigate the chosen theme from multiple points of view. This weekly event has shifted how connections are made by offering a soft space for hard conversation. A place where listening is just as important as speaking. CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS

More about our salons: Unlike most TEDx events which focus on a presentation format, TEDxNewYorkSalon is designed by our team of curators to spark conversation and dialogue, throughout the event. Rather than spotlighting individual speakers or facilitators, we create the soft space for hard conversation. During these gatherings, we screen one evocative TED Talk (via projector) followed by a lively conversation. The featured TED talk is a surprise, but we promise it will ignite deep thinking and connection. We look forward to seeing you there!
