TEDx in Prisons
TEDx in Prisons
Changing the Narrative.
Historically, prison has been a place of separation and punishment. The goal of Changing the Narrative is to highlight the work coming out of prisons via community organized initiatives like the TEDx events organized and held inside prisons.

When correctional staff, prisoners, victims of crime, innovative thinkers, and influential people from all walks of life come together to focus on seemingly unsolvable problems, infinite possibilities abound. These thinkers and speakers and performers are helping to change the narrative.
