TEDxVancouver, an independently organized TED-style event, returns this year to the Queen Elizabeth Theatre with a diverse lineup of local speakers on October 18th. The theme for this year’s event is TILT: “TILT is about exploring and conquering these illusions in order to unleash potential. Attendees can expect an inspiring, thought-provoking program designed to awaken curiosity and shift perspectives.”
