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).

Due to her interest in art theory, she did her second master’s degree in art history at Istanbul University.

In addition to her academic studies, she has been producing philosophical content that everyone can understand on various digital platforms, particularly Youtube, since 2018. Along with these contents, she aims to prevent philosophy from being an activity carried out only in the academy and to build a bridge between the academy and society. Her project, Dilozof, with over 240 thousand subscribers, is one of Turkey’s largest intellectual communities. Besides being a columnist in Herkese Bilim Teknoloji journal and Aposto which is a new generation media platform, she organizes various workshops on the philosophy of art and aims to enable students to meet philosophy without heed of their field by hosting them free of charge at these events.
