TEDx Dartmouth is a local independently organized TED event taking place in Hanover, NH. This year's theme is "Living Bridges" and we have an amazing lineup of 12 talks and performances in celebration of Dartmouth's 250th anniversary.

A living bridge is formed by communities guiding the pliable roots of a tree across a river or stream and allowing them to strengthen and grow over time until they can support the weight of a human being. They are the means of connectivity for societies, modern and premodern, natural and industrial, traditional and trendy. They represent the resilience and patience of pioneers and the cultures that grew from just a seed of an idea. These bridges are people. Communities. A lifestyle. Making the impossible possible. We invite you to attend this year’s TEDxDartmouth conference, where our speakers will connect us to forgotten communities, critically examine what it means to be human, and bridge diverse fields to effect change. Our 2019 conference will celebrate ideas, innovations, and experiences that unite us as a global community and cut across obstacles and boundaries. Take the road less traveled and see where it takes you.
