Emily Carr University hosts TEDx event for an evening of insight

Feb 8 2017, 5:21 pm

On March 25, prepare yourself for a TED-like experience.

TEDx, a local and independently organized version of TED Talks, and Emily Carr University of Art + Design (ECUAD) are co-branded and will bring a number of different speakers to the university for an evening of ideas, connections, and insight.

The evening, called TEDxECUAD, will feature 12 different speakers, all with different backgrounds and experience:

Talks range from five to 18 minutes in length, and all talks can be watched throughout the evening. To make navigation easier for guests, TEDxECUAD is divided into two sections.

The evening ends with a half hour of networking and social time. After party arrangements are still in the works.

The theme of TEDxECUAD is “Bridging the Gap.”

And it’s not only the first TEDx event hosted at ECUAD – it also marks the start of Emily Carr’s transition to its new campus at Great Northern Way.

This event is highly exclusive – only 100 people will be able to enjoy the talks. There will be 40 tickets available to the general public, 20 personal invitations to the event, 20 tickets for ECUAD students, and 20 tickets for ECUAD faculty.

But just because you want to buy a ticket doesn’t mean you’ll get one. TEDxECUAD will review your ticket request and then let you know if you’re able to buy the tickets.

Tickets are available online, and are $52 for the general public. For more information on the event, check it out on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.


When: March 25, 6 to 10:30 pm
Where: 1399 Johnston Street, Emily Carr University of Art + Design
Price: $52 for the general public. Tickets available in limited quantities online
