Join us at the first TEDxYouth event hosted by a District of Columbia public school.
Duke Ellington School of the Arts, is hosting its inaugural TEDx Youth conference on Sunday, April 21st from 3pm to 6pm at the Goethe-Institut.

"DESA Speaks" will introduce the future generation of thought leaders, showcasing the myriad of ways creative young people speak and innovate ideas, as well as the working educators, visionaries, and artists charged with leading them towards that end. This event will boldly confront the adage that "children should be seen and not heard" and pose questions about the urgency of hearing what young people have to say in a world that deems them voiceless, apathetic, and without conviction.

Featured guest include Writopia Lab DC Scholastic Award winners, The Gandhi Brigade and the Youth Training Institute (YTI) at DCTV.
