TEDxFargo 2019: Forward

TEDxFargo 2019 was the final year of a trilogy that began in 2017. This trilogy was designed to be completed with the 10th TEDxFargo event.

About the Trilogy

The first year (2017) we focused on the idea of For. In a world where everyone is certain of what they are against, we wanted to challenge them to change their mindset of distaste into passion. We encouraged them to explore and set themselves on a path of passion finding what they are For.

In the second year of the trilogy (2018) we focused on the word Forth. In this event, we hoped to revisit the passions found in the previous year, and refine our objectives. Ideas need cultivation, not an entire standstill, but a moment of reflection. What did we do well? What aligns with our mission?

In our last year of the trilogy (2019) we focused on Forward.  The emphasis was not just on the word “Forward” but specifically the second half, Ward. Ward can be defined as “the action or process of guarding.” We wanted to create homes for these ideas we’ve spent the last few years cultivating, and create secure spaces for them to grow and make the impact they were intended to.
