Ngaire Blankenberg is internationally recognized for her work planning innovative museums and revitalizing urban spaces. She is co-author, with Gail Lord, of Cities, Museums and Soft Power (AAM Press 2015) which urges museums to play a more vital role in creating equitable, inclusive and empowering cities. She is co-founder of the Museum of AIDS in Africa- a pan-African project which collects, preserves, interprets and remembers the history and impact of AIDS on the continent.

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, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. 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. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
