TEDxDonMills is a community-centric TEDx event. It is a platform, a stage, a venue for dialogue, ideas, and passions; it is a catalyst for change, action, and inspiration. On Saturday, February 9, 2019, we bring our first event at the world renowned Aga Khan Museum with the theme of Designing Tomorrow.

If we look at our world today we can see that we find ourselves in the midst of rapid change and development. This can be seen in, but is not limited to, our technological and scientific advancements, demographic and generational changes, shifts in societies and what is expected of them, and so on.

Designing Tomorrow acknowledges that our tomorrow is a direct reflection and response of our present, and as we move through this journey of the human condition, each one of us has a hand in what that future will look like. As Jason Silva shared in his 2012 TED Global talk, “what imagination does is it allows us to conceive of delightful future possibilities, pick the most amazing one and pull the present forward to meet it.”

The conception of this amazing tomorrow is only possible when we are able to bring together various people, perspectives, voices and paths to explore what their ideal future looks like. What better place to hold this conversation than in one of the most multicultural cities in the world. With greater awareness we can see that ideas, beliefs, innovations and art do not take hold in a vacuum, but rather we need one another to move forward.
