EVENT UPDATE: Our ENGAGE: Deeply Event is Postponed

TEDxCalgary has made the difficult — but very necessary — decision to postpone our planned ENGAGE: Deeply event until October 31, 2020.

The spread of coronavirus/COVID-19 infections is a very real threat to all of us, and our risk assesments determined that our event was not appropriate to hold at this juncture, while modes of infection for the virus remain uncertain. In alignment with guidance being issued by health authorities, the City of Calgary, and now by the Government of Alberta, we voluntarily chose a course of action that we feel will best protect the health of our participants, speakers, and volunteers.

Individuals holding tickets are now being communicated with directly by email. We will continue to update the public via our website as we revise our plans for the new October 31st date. If you're a current ticket-holder looking to have your purchase refunded, please visit our events refund page for additional details and instructions.

Our thanks to our partners, speakers, and volunteers for all of their guidance and support as we made this decision, and we look forward to meeting our participants in person at ENGAGE: Deeply (Take 2) in Fall 2020.

COMMUNITY SALONS UPDATE: All Events Suspended Immediately

Our community salons are being suspended immediately due to closure of programming and event spaces in our partner facilities of the Calgary Public Library. These suspensions are a result of measures being taken by the Library to slow or stop the spread of Coronavirus/COVID-19 infections.

We completely understand and support the Library's decision to do this, and we will resume the community salons in various branches across the city as soon as it is safe and practical to do so. Please note that some community salon locations may return sooner than others, as our own programming is based on volunteer availability and specific arrangements with each branch. As we normally take a break during July and August, some locations may not resume programming until the Fall. Check our Community Salons pages on MeetUp for details.

As we figure out new and ever more innovative ways to connect and engage with our community during a time of physical isolation and distancing, stay tuned for some opportunities for interactive community salons taking place online in the coming months!

ENGAGE: Deeply [2020] Featured

Revised to October 31, 2020 TEDxCalgary Events

This event has been postoned until October 31, 2020 due to social isolation measures to combat the spread of coronavirus/COVID-19. Those holding tickets are being communicated with by direct email. Please stand by for further updates on the revised event plans in the coming weeks.


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. In the spirit of rolling with current events and maintaining a sense of perspective, we've added "(Take 2)" to the title — meaning it will be even better than the first one we didn't get to hold in March.

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!

 

Venue:
New Central Libary | 800 - 3 Street SE
