TEDxBushwick (@TEDxBushwick) for TED
This year’s theme, “Collaborative Creation,” takes a systemic view of community and connection. TEDxBushwick 2016 invites you to focus on big ideas relating to partnerships, groups and organizations – the intimate experience of human collaboration where ideas are born, developed and spread. This conference will be an interactive, creative, and social experience to inspire you to collaborate in new ways.
It is said, if you want to go fast, go alone, but if you want to go far, go together. #CollaborativeCreation

Brooks is truly honored, humbled and excited to become part of an extraordinary group of individuals around the world who have ideas worth spreading and have the guts and courage to go for it and follow their dreams and share their passions.
It means so much to be a part of an extraordinary alumni of such a prestigious organization; TED and TEDxBushwick.
Brooks would like to personally thank the organizers Lori Corpuz and Rah Crawford for an amazing job, all of the hard working and dedicated volunteers and to the other speakers who did an amazing job and who truly encapsulates the meaning of dedication, passion and kindness and to all of our sponsors who supported us with food and lots and lots of coffee.
About TED TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available for free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman. www.ted.com
About TEDx In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
