How do we keep our inquisitive minds engaged and fueled? How do we meet with others who are also curious? Here in Omaha we have the TEDxOmaha Salons and the TEDxOmaha Adventures.
About once a month
Usually on a Saturday morning
Location depends on the host
The aim of Adventures is to expand the TEDxOmaha audience and experience throughout the year. Get off the beaten track, go behind the scenes, engage in conversations we might not normally have, and feed the growth mindset. Every year during the October TEDxOmaha event we get to hear and showcase speakers from our community that are doing amazing things, have great stories to tell, and ideas worth spreading. That is the tip of the iceberg, our community has many more amazing stories to tell, and adventures is a way to do that. For this reason, where possible we encourage the ideas for adventures to come from the community – that is getting not just getting ideas for adventures from you TEDx’ers, but also working with you to put an adventure on. Here in Omaha we have been running Adventures for about four years, when we started we aimed for four adventures a year. This year we hope to have one each month. The size of the group depends upon the host or person at each Adventure destination, but typically it will be anything from 8-20 people. Registration is required and admission is free.
Why will you love them? It’s a small group that can take one Adventure and turn it into a journey of discovering more about the community we live in, one ‘adventure’ at a time.
