There are forces in this world that flow unseen, connecting us all. Here in McMinnville and Yamhill County, we’re bound by a unique love of place – a place that is changing and growing to meet the needs of a diverse and modern population.
At TEDxMcMinnville, we believe these changes should be addressed with a mindset of opportunity and possibility. What an exciting time this is for our community! We have the privilege, and responsibility, to shape our place for the next generation.
This year, we celebrate these unseen forces of change and the volunteers who strive to meet these community challenges head-on. Our theme this year, Currents, recognizes this:
“We are all connected – within our communities, within nature, within families both chosen and given. Our need for connection draws us to concepts bigger than ourselves. In our second year, TEDxMcMinnville highlights big ideas that flow between us to ignite our imaginations, celebrate collaboration, and inspire change.”
TED’s mission is to make great ideas accessible and spark conversation. Let’s spread big ideas and use our collective skills to think critically, share proactively, and act in possibility - not fear - to achieve our goals.
TEDxMcMinnville will be a half day event held on Saturday, January 25, 2020 at Linfield College.
