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).

Angela Fink

Creative Director, No More Plastic Ambassador
Angela is a fashion stylist turned creative director who has worked with brands to imbue their creative assets with lush images of the natural world. She is a co-founder of Dumont Creative Agency alongside her husband, photographer Kelly Bolton. Drawn to vast terrains and quiet expanses, Angela and Kelly venture into the planet’s raw locales and remote corners—seeking solitude and with it, space for contemplation and connection. Their treks serve as the inspiration for their client’s campaigns and for their design studio, a Search for Space, which strives to honor nature’s power and boundlessness. While traveling, Angela witnessed first-hand the impact of plastic pollution worldwide. Devastated by the toll of plastic waste on the natural world, Angela began the journey toward reducing her plastic usage. An ambassador for No More Plastic, she’s passionate about raising awareness about the effects of plastic pollution to brands and friends and advocating for mindful consumption.
