Your support for independent local news is important.

The Source Weekly has been Central Oregon’s locally owned news outlet for over 23 years. We have always been the definition of "support local." Our success in navigating this new world is tied to the success we experience in pulling together for the common good.

Quality local journalism takes a group of dedicated reporters passionate about democracy and open government. This story is the result of our hard work, and in normal times, the result of the support of the advertisers in Central Oregon. In the age of COVID-19, however, that support has taken a hit—but that’s where you come in.

  • TEDxBend 2018 was held at Bend High School on March 31.
Back in March, TEDxBend hosted a number of idea innovators from various fields, along with a few musicians, at Bend High School for a full day of inspirational talks and performances.

Each speaker had 18 minutes to explain their idea and leave the crowd with an action item to take home to help make the idea a reality. Talks ranged from educating the public on the role public interest lobbyists play in local government, using new tech to better humanity, the acceptance and welcoming of grief to using tourism to protect indigenous communities and the environment.

The talks are now available for streaming on tedxbend.com.

Here are a few of my personal favorites from the event:
Erik Kancler | Making Politics Great Again

Bend Camerata | Central Oregon's Premier Vocal Chamber Ensemble

Katherine Center | Why We Need To Teach Boys To Read Stories About Girls
