Keller Auditorium

TEDxPortland 2018

Br / dges

PDX. Stumptown. Rose City. Portland has many nicknames, but perhaps the most enduring is Bridgetown — a nod to our iconic bridges and the culture of acceptance that fuels our creativity. Portland’s famed bridges represent our progress and expose our challenges. From a past tarnished with racial inequality to a present that seeks to transcend that story. Year 8 is dedicated to building the future of Portland as an equitable, hopeful, and prosperous city for all. We will explore the duality with each speaker and their idea.

Enjoy 14 brilliant talks, four thrilling performances and numerous surprises as we explore the theme of Br / dges.
