In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized (subject to certain rules and regulations).

Topic: "Through the lens of art: seeing the world of activism" or "Art is a form of activism." Importance: Being an activist is commonly misinterpreted as giving speeches, attending strikes or belonging to a worldwide organization, when in reality this is far from the truth. Art plays a key role in the world of activism; it brings life to movements and a visual aspect words can't achieve. It spreads messages quickly which is crucial to spreading the word in any social issue; the more people are aware, the more people can enact change

Topic: Child Abuse Importance: It’s a topic that needs to be talked about, and people need to realize that it’s more prominent than before. I myself lived in an abusive household for 8 years and I think I can use that experience and take something good out of it.
