TEDxPenangRoadSalon was be about the curious case of identity (both personal and communal) and the various interactions that shape it. It seeks to spread thought-provoking ideas and generate discourses regarding various types of identities as well as instilling an appreciation of the various forces such as cultural, heritage and art that shape our identities.

A Salon event is a themed event that features three speakers, usually revolving around a specific area or theme. Other than an 18-minute TED-Style presentation by the speakers, panel discussions and close-up interaction with the speakers were also curated to enhance the TED experience.
