After a hiatus, TEDxVancouver will be making its return on Saturday, October 18 with new and exciting ideas worth spreading. This year, the event has a new playground.

This year’s TEDxVancouver will take place at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. Its name implies certain regality and the spacious proscenium theatre—one of Canada’s largest—boasts just that. Opened by Queen Elizabeth II in 1959, it represents a period of Vancouver’s cultural growth.

Our city’s architectural and artistic histories are readily translated through the building’s innovative design and the theatre’s art gallery, curated by Emily Carr University and featuring works by new and emerging artists. Located in the heart of downtown Vancouver, it’s home to the Vancouver Opera, BC Ballet, and rotating Broadway productions.
