Theme: September 23 Remix Salon: TED Speaker Dr. Carin Bondar Facilitates

This event occurred on
September 23, 2016
NYC, New York
United States

Our REMIX Salons happen about once per quarter and feature TED speakers and experts as guest facilitators. An "only in New York" event, REMIX salons connect our community to the best thinkers in New York in ways that allow a deeper exploration of a theme or topic as they participate in a dynamic and insightful discussion.

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.


Carin Bondar is a biologist with a PhD in population ecology from the University of British Columbia. She is an online writer, host and producer with Scientific American, Science Alert and Earth Touch Productions, and a television presenter for Discovery International and National Geographic Wild. Her independent web series 'Wild Sex' (on the unique world of the evolution of sexual behavior) has amassed over 5 million views in its first four months online. Her first book, 'The Nature of Human Nature', examines the unique behaviors of the human species in the context of Darwin's 'Survival of the Fittest'. Dr. Bondar has just returned from French Polynesia shooting a series on the biology and ecology of the Tahitian islands. When she is not glued to her computer screen or travelling the world, Dr. Bondar is at home with her 4 young children in Chilliwack, British Columbia.
