Frankie Simone offers a vision of pop music as a conduit for collective enlightenment, self-empowerment and awakening. Frankie’s music exists, she says, “to celebrate every type of human.” It’s a message she has worked hard to communicate through youth outreach programs, community work and in various musical projects.
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 TEDxMtHood, where x=independently organized TED event.
At our TEDxMtHood 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. Visit TED.com to learn more.
