ENGAGE: with Ideas

To celebrate our 10th anniversary as a TEDx organizing team, in 2019 we're embarking on a year-long journey of building new connections, and holding even deeper conversations.

ENGAGE: Intentionally Salon

June 20, 2019 | 6:30 to 9:00 PM TEDxCalgary Events

Explore a different way of building community through deep, intentional dialogue. In the process, discover how we can help shape our sense of purpose either individually, or collectively as a city.

Our three speakers will spark your imagination with their talks, sharing both perspectives and tools that you can use to engage other participants in a set of deep conversations about what YOU think we need to change about our dialogue on community. Immerse yourself in the interactions with other equally curious Calgarians, and help us generate a new and far-reaching conversation about how we define our purpose.

This event features live speakers. Please visit our Speakers page to learn more about them!

Thank you for your interest, but this event is SOLD OUT. Please consider joining us for a future event!
