About TEDx, x = independently organized event
Brooklyn is a place like no other and Brooklynites are no ordinary people. As a microcosm of Brooklyn’s past, present, and future, the iconic Flatbush neighborhood represents the full spectrum of individuals and ideas that call this borough home.
With a history as long as the avenue that bears its name, Flatbush is a vibrant community brought to life by different ethnicities, cultures, ages and faiths. Though we share subway cars, dollar vans, gyms, coffees shops and grocery stores together, we connect less and less in meaningful ways in public. TEDxFlatbush is a one day conference curated to giving us space to reconnect to our dreams, ourselves, and each other. This is a platform created to celebrate the diversity of us—and to invite this collective us to imagine how life could unfold differently one conference at a time.
More than just talks and discussions, TEDxFlatbush events are one-of-a-kind settings to spread love and ideas the Brooklyn way.
