WHAT IS TEDxUskudar American Academy ? 


In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program
called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is call TEDxUskudar American Academy,where x=independently organized TED event.

At our TEDxUskudarAmericanAcademyevent, TEDTalks video and live speakers 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, including ours, are self-organized.
