Our 2016 Event

On April 23, people came from all over the world to contribute to a conversation. This conversation, focused around our 2016 theme, "Think Next," brought the Washington, DC community together to learn about ideas that will shape our shared future. We hope you enjoyed the different perspectives brought by our presenters and, maybe, felt challenged by some as well. We will you again next year!

All recorded TEDx Talks from TEDxFoggyBottom are now available.

Come back soon for more information about our 2017 event.
