TEDxGrandForks: Breaking Bread
HB Sound & Light
101 N 8th St, Grand Forks, ND 58203, United States
The theme of TEDxGrandForks 2017, Breaking Bread, is the idea of building community and opening the table to more, not fewer, people. When you engage in the physical act of sitting down at a table, joining together with someone, you meet at a neutral point where you are open to listening, learning, and engaging. Breaking Bread speaks to the idea behind the physicality of eating together. Opening your mind to ideas you may disagree with, ideas you may not have considered, ideas you passionately agree with, ideas that make you happy, angry, and sad; all of these thoughts and emotions are accepted at the table. It's a place where you can engage, listen, and contemplate the big things, taking time to learn and grow from one another. Welcome to Breaking Bread - take a bite, chew it, and join us in engaging our ideas and our community.
