Similarly to how we try to expand musical tastes here at Never Radio, we also want to push the boundaries of self-growth and cultural exploration. Subsequently, we are big fans of some of the amazing events in cities across the world that aid in one’s personal growth and harvest minds. Just like when you hear songs that enlighten you and makes you think, the ever popular Ted Talks can have similarly engaging effects. These talks that spread all over the world, currently based out of Vancouver, are also available in cities around the world through TEDX. Luckily, our Vancouver audience has an event coming up on May 28th 2016: TEDxStanleyPark.
Importantly, TEDxStanleyPark is a non-profit event, legendary for its incredible speakers and the ideas put forward. This years event is thematically centered around “Ideas to Action” which is based around the sources for human achievement. This event will be a catalyst for positive change both individually and as a community and we at Never Radio are extremely proud to be part of such a positive event.
We are extremely excited to be working with TEDxStanleyPark and the minds behind such an event. The event has been around for a few years already but this year they have expanded the capacity for the audience over five times from last year as demand continues to grow. Taking place at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in downtown Vancouver, there will be 15 speakers covering a range of topics that will be of interest to most culturally aware and conscientious people throughout the lower mainland. To get an idea of what a day at a TEDX event can be like, check out our coverage of TEDxVancouver. However, this is a completely different event though, with a wonderfully engaging group of speakers. We will be covering the event and live-tweeting on the day as well as reviewing it in its entirety afterwards. Additionally, we will be interviewing one of the speakers, Connor Beaton, prior to the event and focusing on him in more detail as he will be one of the most anticipated talks of TEDxStanleyPark 2016. The complete list of the speakers and a preview of their respective talks is available here, but names such as Ryan Phillips, Galya Westler and Bosco Anthony are among them.
Tickets for TEDxStanleyPark are available here and we encourage everyone to get them before they are gone as this event has sold out several weeks in advance previously.
