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 may have a few opportunities for great volunteers to join us for the event, including load-in and load-out. This is a great opportunity to see the behind the scenes action and get to know the core team. If interested, please submit this form. Note: as a volunteer, you will receive a ticket that includes food/beverage but will not include a seat in the theater. Volunteers are “unseated” tickets and may not be able to watch the live talks. Submission of interest is not a guarantee you will secure a volunteer spot – if you want to make sure you can attend, we encourage you to buy a ticket!
Core Team Volunteering: We are currently taking a look at our long-term needs internally and will be updating our open positions soon. Stay tuned!
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.
