Aden is known as one of the “painters of Mogadishu,” working under Siad Barre, facing persecution during the conflict, and now playing a central role in peace-building. Writes Africa Report, “Balancing a cigarette and a tube of paint in one hand, Aden says he never runs out of inspiration. Aden has amassed an incredible body of work, to the point of chronicling almost every significant event and debate in the country as well as the figures that have shaped Somalia’s past.”

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)
