Sometimes swelling with monsoon rains, and sometimes bone-dry with cracked dirt, the Rillito River winds through Tucson. This event asks us to consider the currents—visible and invisible—that shape our community, and to reflect on the current issues that impact our lives. TEDxRillitoRiver, in homage to the river system that first prompted people to gather around the water and call this place home, seeks to be a space for collective inspiration as we continue to create our community.
