Theme: The Space Between

This year’s theme explores “The Space Between.” It’s a concept that can take us on interplanetary adventures one moment and encourage us to delve more deeply into our own minds at the next. It’s the distance that divides neighbors and the slightest sliver that separates. It’s a call to explore the void.

Similarly, the space between our speaker sessions will feature a collection of interactive experiences, TEDxDesMoines t-shirts to purchase, a photo wall, snacks, and more fun to connect attendees.

From ideas worth spreading to projects worth doing, we hope you enjoy the event with people worth meeting.
