TEDxDonovanCorrectional Event

San Diego, CA
In the spirit of world-renowned TED Talks, TEDxDonovanCorrectional ? a unique gathering focused on inspiration, transformation and interaction ? will take place at Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility on Sunday, May 21, 2017. The process of organizing TEDxDonovanCorrectional has fully engaged the prison inmate population. A Core Team of ten inmates is strategizing, planning, and facilitating the event from beginning to end, supported by a group of local TEDx volunteers. The independently organized event, licensed by TED, will feature a broad spectrum of TEDx Talks under the theme ?Beyond the Surface.? ?Beyond the Surface? is a journey into the unseen. This theme demands of us to participate in a mind-altering interaction that will challenge perceived notions, uproot entrenched biases and soften hardened stereotypes. We will also explore what?s beyond the surface of the invisible forces holding our universe together, the depths of unexplored worlds, as well as the intricacies of interpersonal dynamics and more.
