What is TEDxDharavi all about?

TEDxDharavi is an independently organized TED event operated under the license from TED. Like all TEDx events, this event also focuses on bringing people together on a common platform, make connections and share knowledge on the relevant topic of discussion. The main idea behind TEDxDharavi has been to bring forth the unheard stories and hidden inspirational innovations burgeoning inside one of Asia’s largest slum area - Dharavi (Mumbai, India).

The theme for TEDxDharavi revolves around Reimagine, Redefine:
Reimagine Dharavi - for the immense potential and productivity that this resource-constrained area has been able to generate for years, not just in India but across countries.
And Redefine Dharavi - with the new breed of denizens who, inspite all odds, intend to make a significant change and difference for their fellow-inhabitants and for the country at large.

At TEDxDharavi, we aspire and make an attempt to invite such famous innovators and speakers, from different walks of life, to uncover the amazing ideas, the impact it had and their inspirational journey that originates from the trailing lanes of Dharavi.
