TED is a nonprofit organization committed to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a conference in California 1984, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with many initiatives. At a TED conference, the world's leading thinkers and doers are asked to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes or less.
The TEDx is an independently organized TED event under the TED license to people around the world to organize TED-style events in their communities with Talks and live speakers to inspire and share innovative ideas. Living by the vision of TED, TEDxDharavi also focuses on bringing people together on a common platform, make connections and share knowledge on the relevant topic of discussion. Through the theme “Reimagine, Redefine” we plan to develop TEDxDharavi as a platform where we learn from amazing innovations taking place across the world and also showcase various speakers from Dharavi who have challenged all stereotypes. The main idea behind TEDxDharavi has been to bring forth the unheard stories and hidden inspirational innovations burgeoning inside one of Asia’s largest slum area - Dharavi (Mumbai, India).
