Join us this Friday at The Olivia (315 West 33rd Street), for a TEDxNewYorkSalon facilitated by Tish Valles. Doors open at 5:00 pm, the screening begins at 5:30 pm. Tickets are available free of charge, on a first-come, first-served basis.

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) and follow-up with a lively conversation afterward.
