The following description was submitted by the event organizer.
In a world that’s often polarized and divisive, choose to come together. At the intersection of skepticism and curiosity are understanding and innovation. The power of ideas is what propels everyone forward. Inspired by the confluence of water where the Willamette River meets the Columbia, purpose and persistence find their way to the sea. Year 11 will embrace fluidity, strength, and balance. Celebrate the contrarians, open-minded thinkers, and doers committed to creating a better tomorrow for the city and the world. Together, they will ebb and flow and find the way.
The one-day event will feature 12 TED Talks, highlighted by four incredible performances.
