Theme: Here By Choice

Bellingham, WA
United States

Bellingham is a place like no other. This inaugural TEDx event celebrates our shared sense of place and the individual choices we’ve each made in our lives.

Thoreau said, “As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind...” We could interpret that to mean ideas are not created in a vacuum. All knowledge is connected. Ideas are infinite. The more you know, the more there is to know.

We hope you’ll approach this day in the spirit in which it is presented. Choose to consider a new idea. Choose to be moved. Choose to be inspired; to take action; to change the world. Or, simply choose to be.
