They are struggling. Sadly, they also hold some of the best and brightest creativity. Creativity that’s being lost in a linear society. What if we saw them differently? What if we shifted our paradigms to Not Wrong Just Different? Only then could we really tap into all that these relationships have to offer.

What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxFortWayne, where x=independently organized TED event. At our TEDxFortWayne event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
This independent TEDx event is operated under license from TED.
