Greetings TEDxFlourCity family!

Look outside. It’s that time of year again. The Lilac Festival is underway, trees are blooming, and there are people on every sidewalk. True Rochester spring is here and of course, it’s almost time again for our favorite conference.

At colleges throughout the city, students are preparing for final exams and graduation. So it’s fitting that our final look back at last year’s main event highlights a group of driven R.I.T. students. Read on to re-live, and receive insights from our final TEDxFlourCity2014 speakers...

Greetings TEDxFlourCity fans!

We are only 4 weeks out from TEDxFlourCity2015: Branch Out and with more frequent team meetings, and constant email and Facebook message slinging, we are in full gear. Although we are focused on May 30th, current events serve as striking reminders of our past. A look back at last year’s event reminds us why TEDxFlourCity is important; it serves as a space where positive ideas are lifted out of heavy issues and connections are highlighted within our community…
