Confluence II

Watch the Simulcast

Thank you, St. Louis!

On February 21, TEDxGatewayArch hosted Confluence II at the Sheldon Concert Hall.  In spite of wintery forecasts, hundreds of enthusiastic TEDsters filled the theater to applaud some of our region’s finest citizens.

Sixteen speakers, half a dozen performers and numerous exhibitors gave attendees a full day of new ideas and success stories, illustrating how our city is filled with innovators and thought leaders.

If you couldn’t attend our second flagship event, visit the recorded and unedited simulcast which will remain on this site until the volunteer team can separate and edit each speaker’s presentation.

We will be holding open auditions for our next event in early June.  Sign up for our newsletter so you don’t miss out!

What is TEDx?

TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) is a global set of conferences owned by the private non-profit Sapling Foundation, under the slogan: “Ideas Worth Spreading”.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxConfluence, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxGatewayArch events, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

Stay up to date on what happens to ideas after a TEDxGatewayArch event. Follow up with speakers, performers and partners to see how their ideas have grown.
