Head to the Stan Hagen Theatre at North Island College this Wednesday March 18th for an engaging and stimulating evening of local presenters, TED Talk videos and live music all in the spirit of Ideas Worth Spreading.
TEDx is a program of local, independently-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. These events are officially endorsed by TED and are designed to inspire discussion and connection at the community level. Locally organized by Imagine Comox Valley, with support from North Island College and World Community, TEDx Comox Valley is a fantastic night that will stimulate the mind and spark the imagination!
Entry is by donation with a suggested minimum donation of $10 to cover event costs. The event starts at 7 sharp and doors open at 6:45. SEating is limited and advance tickets are available online to reserve a seat. Limited tickets will be also available at the door on a first come first serve basis. Ticket links, presenter info and more info are available at www.imaginecomoxvalley.ca or visit TEDx Comox Valley on Facebook.
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.
The annual TED Conference takes place each spring in Vancouver, British Columbia, along with the TEDActive simulcast event in nearby Whistler. The annual TEDGlobal conference will be held this October in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. TED’s media initiatives include TED.com, where new TED Talks are posted daily; the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed. TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world get help translating their wishes into action; TEDx, which supports individuals or groups in hosting local, self- organized TED-style events around the world, and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.Follow TED on Twitter at http://twitter.com/TEDTalks
