The world’s first TEDx event in a refugee camp will take place in Kenya

The first-ever TEDx event in a refugee camp will take place in a small town in northwest Kenya.

TEDxKakumaCamp on June 9 will bring together current and former refugees besides other speakers and performers to share stories of perseverance and creativity. The aim is to steer away from the one-sided narrative of suffering and dejection. The theme of the event—“thrive”—is also about showcasing how refugees can help change not only their lives but the communities and countries in which they live.

The gathering, modeled after the TED global ideas conferences, comes as refugees in Kenya continue to face maltreatment and uncertain futures. Authorities have also threatened to close the largest refugee camp in the country at Dadaab.READ MORE
