No theme, no topics…no problem. Speakers from all walks of life will be speaking about their stories at a local un-conference called Interesting Vancouver on Friday October 8th at the Vancouver Rowing club.
Essentially Interesting Vancouver is a multi-disciplinary conference. It seeks to impart new knowledge about things you’ve never known or thought about. Open up parallel thinking ports. Activate parts of your brain that for even the brainiest person may have been neglected or unexplored. There will be a degree of spontaneity, unexpected moments and learning.
The Interesting Vancouver 2010 will bring carefully curated speakers to fill the schedule – from a post-op transgender whose experiences taught her to be who she really is, to a young leader of the Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) people, preserving indigenous languages and others.
Currently, there are a number of speakers lined up and that the full roster won’t be unveiled until the event itself, “the mystery is a big part of what makes Interesting special,” say organizers.
Coupled with sustainable, responsible catering from FoodTree, ticket holders will be treated to a splendid collage of interesting ideas and passionate people.
