What is TEDx? In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events licensed by TED.

Our event is called TEDxSanatNagarWomen, where x = independently organized TED event and women represents the category of our license. At our event, accomplished and upcoming Kashmiri women will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, includ- ing ours, are self-organized.

Our theme, unearhting local voices seeks to bring to light the knowledge, passion and creativity of Kashmiri women who aren't a part of mainstream discourse. The day will span from the dark, chilling side of unimaginable events that make way for life lessons, to the bright, thought- provoking side of life-altering ideas explored for the first time.
