TEDxDonMills 2019: Designing Tomorrow
Look around you and you will find yourself in a world of rapid change and development. Does this scare you? Does it inspire you? Does it motivate you to take action?
Designing Tomorrow acknowledges that our tomorrow is a direct reflection and response of our present, and as we move through this journey of the human condition, each one of us has a hand in what that future will look like.
As Jason Silva shared in his 2012 TED Global talk, “what imagination does is it allows us to conceive of delightful future possibilities, pick the most amazing one and pull the present forward to meet it.” The conception of this amazing tomorrow is only possible when we are able to bring together various people, perspectives, voices and paths to explore what their ideal future looks like.
TEDxDonMills at the Aga Khan Museum will be a day of exploration, with each speaker, each performer, each experience opening our minds to tomorrow from a different lens, from social justice issues, technological innovations, environmentalism, religion and spirituality, international development, identity and human expressions such as music and other forms of art.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 25 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. The annual TED Conference invites the world's leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes. Their talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Al Gore, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani,Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. The annual TED Conference takes place in Long Beach, California, with simulcast in Palm Springs; TEDGlobal is held each year in Oxford, UK. TED's media initiatives include TED.com, where new TEDTalks are posted daily, and the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as the ability for any TEDTalk to be translated by volunteers worldwide. TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world are given the opportunity to put their wishes into action; TEDx, which offers individuals or groups a way to host local, self-organized events around the world, and the TEDFellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to become part of the TED community and, with its help, amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
