Our team is proud to present the third annual TEDxBrooklyn where attendees will explore this home we call Brooklyn. Constantly evolving digital environments allow communities to be built across previously impassable boundaries. This amalgam of online and analog living is reshaping how we interact with our neighbors as well as how we express ourselves. As like-minded New Yorkers, we strive for community though experience.

On December 7 at Brooklyn Bowl, we will address these issues with talks and performances from the best and brightest minds of Brooklyn and beyond.
