TEDx Silver Lake – Crossing the Divide

Welcome to TEDxSilver Lake – Crossing the Divide!   Get ready for an immersive experience that will ignite your curiosity and inspire new ideas.

Tedx Silver Lake is an exciting new event happening on Friday, February 23, 2024 at the Iron Trail Motors Event Center, Virginia, MN. Join us for a day filled with captivating talks, thought-provoking discussions, and innovative ideas worth spreading.  Doors open at 4:00 pm, with the event starting at 5:00 pm.

Our theme for 2024 is “Crossing the Divide”. It is a broad theme meant to include many ideas and it is open to each individual’s interpretation. The common thread is that these ideas presented at this event should bring us together. That doesn’t mean that all audience members will agree, it only means that we seek inspiration, passion, and curiosity in these talks instead of judgement.

Our diverse lineup of speakers will cover a wide range of topics. Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals, expand your horizons, and be part of a global movement. Come and be inspired at Tedx Silver Lake!


What is TEDx?

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 Tedx Silver Lake, where x = independently organized TED event.  At our TEDx Tedx Silver Lake 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.

Tedx Silver Lake will include carefully prepared talks, demonstrations and performances that are idea-focused, and cover a wide range of subjects to foster learning, inspiration and wonder – and provoke conversations that matter.
