What is a TEDx salon?

Unlike other TEDx events, salon events focus on a single subject area, rather than a broader theme. They are shorter in duration and intended for smaller groups, which spark more productive discussions.

TEDxAmoskeagMillyard Salon Event in Immigration


We are designing our salon as a series of dialogues, each on a specific topic. Each salon conversation deals with a challenge we currently face as a community.

Engaging with these issues directly and as a community enriches our thinking and builds connection. It explicitly constructs the audience as a community coming together to share an experience and engage with ideas that might just make the world a better place—we become more than individuals, couples, groups of friends or families enjoying a night out in our bubble.

It is our hope that by creating this venue, forging deeper connections with local institutions, and encouraging greater social engagement, we will serve, grow, and deepen the community that enjoys our larger, annual TEDxAmoskeagMillyard event. In other words, we hope to help spread ideas.

Salons are free and open to the general public.

People may attend one salon or all of them.
