Threads 2019 Conference
Date: November : 1-3, 2019
Share | Appreciate | Engage – To Shape a Collective Future
Threads is the first of its kind conference with one audacious goal: to tell the story of the Hindu-American.
Hindus immigrated to the United States of America from all corners of the world and are deeply interwoven in the fabric of America today. Hindus have strengthened the strands of culture, knowledge and enterprise. They have enriched the American tapestry with diverse and far ranging contributions.
Hindus have made the USA their home – as scientists and technologists they are pushing the envelope of discovery, as business leaders and entrepreneurs they are creating wealth for America, as educators Hindus are igniting the minds of future Americans, as artists Hindus are adding creative patterns in the American mosaic and are bringing about positive change by actively engaging in public service and journalism. The Hindu practices of yoga and meditation, universal ethos of Hindu spirituality, values of pluralism and inclusion are increasingly enhancing the quality of life in America.
Threads aims to bring together inspiring Hindu-American thinkers, artists, educators, writers, public policy makers, scientists, medical professionals, technologists, entrepreneurs, business leaders on one platform – for a singular purpose: to share their stories and journeys, to celebrate their accomplishments and engage with each other face to face and explore together, how their Hindu roots have made them successful, and share their ideas for brighter, better America of tomorrow.
Even as the incredible and fascinating saga of Hindu-Americans continues, it is time to chronicle their assimilation and contributions. The inspiring story of how Hindu-Americans defined their dreams is in fact a tribute to America, which has embraced Hindus with open arms as they fulfill their aspirations of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness in this wonderful land of opportunity.
The three-day conference will be held in Boston, MA from Nov 1-3, 2019 and welcomes people from all disciplines, denominations and cultures who seek a deeper understanding of the Hindu-American narrative.
