Imagining Beyond Your Circumstances
Jarrett J. Krosoczka tells us how imagination and the encouragement to pursue artistic expression transformed his life.

A graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, he currently has authored and illustrated eighteen published books—ten picture books and eight graphic novels.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event 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)
