TEDxMtHood ADVENTURES! are back! Adventures are unique and intimate events, designed to offer our TEDx community unparalleled, behind-the scenes access to the people and places that make the local area so dynamic. Our adventures extend the TEDx phenomenon beyond the single day of the conference, enabling people to participate as we enhance the experience for both speakers and attendees. We’ll provide a way to spread ideas that don’t fit into an 18-minute talk and, through this format, we’ll be able to include more community members in our conversations.

With at least one adventure each month, we’ll ensure that ample opportunities exist for our TEDxMtHood community to engage in and continue a dialogue. There will be workshops, tours and activities in our adventures to come and something for everyone in our community.

ADVENTURES! aren’t your typical networking event. You’ll find that often, much like TEDx events, adventuring doesn’t stop when we all go home. Durable connections are made, and attendees forge new friendships through mutual interest and active participation. Adventures are also an inexpensive way to experience the TEDx community throughout the year in smaller groups with thought-provoking individuals.

Our adventures are an opportunity to meet TEDxMtHood speakers, planning team members, and partners who are eager to share with you whatever it is they do best! From an exposition of the coffee industry from seed to cup, to an eccentrically clad group roller derby lesson we provide many templates for involvement, all designed to engage you and provoke your inner enthusiast!

Sign up on Eventbrite to attend one or more of our upcoming ADVENTURES! and bring your friends! Our adventures tend to sell out, so be sure to sign up early if there is one you really want to make sure you get to attend.

We can’t wait to adventure together with you and have you join our vibrant TEDxMtHood community!
