TEDxMinneapolis is devoted to telling the grand Minneapolis story via the TEDx “Ideas Worth Spreading” platform. We host an event or two a year, and pull together all local yet global ideators, delicious local grub, fantastic craft and mini-still beverage, and impactful collaborators. All of these elements come together for a truly immersive, engaging, inspiring, and entertaining event. Join us.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxMinneapolis, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxMinneapolis event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
Event Day Volunteering: We are always looking for great volunteers to join us on the days of and around our events. They are great opportunities to see behind the scenes and get to know the core team. Please submit to us via this form.
We also have a few roles available on our core team. The Core Team is a highly engaged set of talented people that hold core roles and contribute to the program year-round. They contribute their time (the Core Team is voluntary) and are at the heart of the TEDxMinneapolis experience. Below are our current opportunities. If you are interested, please submit your interest via this form along with a resume or link with more information about your background. If we are interested, we’ll reach out to you and setup a time to chat to get to know each other a bit and talk about the opportunity.
TEDxMinneapolis engages in an advisory circle on a routine basis to assist us with understanding the story of Minneapolis, engage in resources and networks, and assist us in becoming experts in our city’s narrative.
