TEDxFlourCity was a daylong even being organized by an eclectic group of young professional in Rocehster. We're driven by our want to offer a forum for Rochester to share profound ideas with our audience, Rochester, and the world. Our program drew upon extraordinary voices from within the community--people who have a unique story or an unusual perspective--and who can convey it in a dynamic way.

But it’s so much more than a conference. It’s a platform for bringing like-minded people together for conversation, collaboration, and community-building. It’s an event designed to catalyze positive local initiatives, so bring your ideas and your business cards! And it’s not just one day each year. Our goal is to get people to participate in an online network that links local projects with the people and resources that can make them happen.
