The first Tedx event at Sing Sing Correctional Facility was held on December 3, 2014. The theme was Creating Healthy Communities and included performances from Carnegie Hall at Sing Sing, Ice-T and Gina Belafonte. The goal of the event was for visitors and inmates to explore the theme from a variety of perspectives, including individual, physical, mental, and emotional health, to talk about how to work together to build a nourishing and supportive community, no matter where you might be; even in a maximum security prison like Sing Sing.
The event was organized by Emily Patka, the Academic Coordinator at Hudson Link for HIgher Education in Prison.
