We're very pleased to be hosting a local viewing party for specially-selected content from the 2019 TEDWomen "BOLD + BRILLIANT" event!

Join us on December 9th for an evening of thought-provoking ideas from some of the most interesting and influential women on the planet. While it's not a livestream, you'll be watching the talks in unedited form, just as they occurred from the TEDWomen stage — and long before they're released to the world. Join other equally curious Calgarians to watch and discuss!

ENGAGE: Deeply [2020]

ENGAGE: Deeply [2020]

Our 10th Anniversary event is a deep exploration of amazing ideas, accompanied by equally deep conversations and rich interactions with other participants at the stunning New Central Library.

Join us for a day of immersing yourself in Ideas worth spreading, both presented from the stage by our speakers and as shared by you -- our participants -- in a varied set of experiences hosted by our volunteer team and interactions partners across the library.

Be part of the day's campfire conversations by sharing your perspectives with us and others, including interactions like recording your own TEDxCalgary 180Ideas talk (180 seconds/3 minutes to inform or change someone's viewpoint); sharing a deep conversation with a friend, family member or brand-new acquaintance using the TED Prize winning StoryCorps app; or contributing to the live creation of a work of art to commemorate the day!
