TEDxHarlem 2012 – A Full Day of Ideas & Innovation @ Apollo Theater | Mar. 27

TEDxHarlem 2012

The first-ever TEDxHarlem, a day-long symposium featuring the best leaders and thinkers of our time, will be held at the world famous Apollo Theater on March 27th.

Hosted by Majora Carter, radio host and environmentalist, Carlos Dominguez, Senior Vice President at Cisco, and Coltrane Curtis, Founder & Creative Director at Epiphany—TEDxHarlem aims to provoke conversations that help propel both Harlem and the global community forward. Topics include health and wellness, civic engagement, science, technology, engineering and math (S.T.E.M.), and mobility and connectivity.

Throughout the day, approximately 20 speakers, including Celebrity Chef Marcus Samuelsson, Thelma Golden of Harlem Studio Museum, Braddock, Pennsylvania Mayor John Fetterman, and Bina48, the most advanced humanoid robot, among others, will facilitate a suite of short talks, demonstrations and performances on an array of subjects to foster learning, inspiration and wonder.

Organized by the Living Labs Foundation, TEDxHarlem personifies the theme of “Creating Waves,” and it will serve as a terrific opportunity to utilize your influence.

The conference day is broken out into four movements designed to explore the newest ideas in innovation and expose you to concepts and dialogue that are exciting, engaging and inspirational.

  • Movement #1: The Global Future: Topics that will impact your world tomorrow
  • Movement #2: The Application of Ideas: Ideas in motion
  • Movement #3: Innovation and Triumph: How we did it
  • Movement #4: Actionable Moments: The challenge. The call to action.
