One for you, one for someone deserving…

“To get the full value of joy you must have someone to divide it with.”

- Mark Twain

TED promotes ideas worth spreading, and here at TEDxEastVan, we want as many people as possible to be able to hear these amazing ideas. As many of you know, we are a non-profit community event run solely by volunteers and a few generous sponsors. The ticket price to the event includes lunch, snacks, bottomless cups of coffee and a great after-party.

But as hard as we work to make this event affordable, we realise that there are many people in our community who just don’t have the means to make it to our event. And we knew we had to do something to change this.

So we took in all the feedback and requests we’ve received over the last year and we’re thrilled to present the Pay it Forward program. The program allows you to purchase an extra ticket to donate to someone in our East Van community who otherwise wouldn’t be able to attend. It’s your opportunity to gift someone an opportunity to be inspired and join our tightknit community at the York theatre. If you want to give back in a smaller way, you can also choose the ‘General plus Donation’ ticket and add $20 to your purchase. This way, you are lowering the price for someone who can’t afford to pay the full amount.

Our team will reach out to community organisations and together we will make sure that the free ticket goes to someone who will fully appreciate the opportunity to join us at TEDxEastVan.

This year’s theme is Human and, with your help, we want to level the playing field so that every human in our community can experience our event. See you there!

Experience the opening night of TED 2017 with us

You know TED Talks. Everyone knows TED Talks. Now, you can experience the opening night of the conference on the big screen with the TEDXEastVan team.  The electrifying TED Conference will be broadcast LIVE to cinemas this April, and TEDxEastVan will be hosting a special screening for our community on the 24th at 7.40pm at Silvercity Metropolis cinemas.

Be the first to hear TED’s newest ideas based on the 2017 theme: The Future You, from extraordinary speakers and performers at the sold-out TED2017 conference.

It’s one thing to watch a TED Talk online; it’s another experience altogether to be in a cinema together with your friends and fellow TED enthusiasts, watching speakers deliver the talks of their lives in real time. It's going to be an unforgettable night. See you there!
