Confluence: Where Ideas Meet Action

In the heart of the vibrant and dynamic city of Minneapolis, we gather to celebrate a powerful convergence of minds, dreams, and actions. TEDxMinneapolis 2024 proudly presents “Confluence: Where Ideas Meet Action,” a TEDx event that encapsulates the transformative energy created when visionary thinking intersects with purposeful doing.

Imagine a place where diverse ideas flow together like mighty rivers, each contributing its unique strengths to a greater current of innovation and progress. At this confluence, boundaries dissolve, and collaboration thrives, igniting a spark that can illuminate the world. This year, we invite you to join us in exploring the exhilarating potential that emerges when creativity and action unite.

Our stage will host a remarkable array of speakers in different formats—pioneers in their fields, trailblazers of change, and catalysts of progress—each bringing forward ideas that challenge the status quo and inspire us to take bold steps toward a better future. From groundbreaking scientific applications to transformative social initiatives and revolutionary artistic expressions, “Confluence” is where these powerful currents converge through actionable outcomes, creating waves of impact that resonate far beyond this event.

Join us at TEDxMinneapolis 2024 and be a part of something greater. Your journey towards making a difference starts here. Don’t miss this opportunity to be inspired, to connect, and to act. Together, we can create ripples of change that will touch the lives of many and shape the world for generations to come!
