TEDxUBCO will be at the Rotary Centre for the Arts on March 18 at 2 p.m.

At the TEDxUBCO event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.

TEDx is an opportunity for local leaders to come together to create a TED like experience for the Kelowna community. The organizing team is made up of UBCO students, hoping to inspire and engage with other students, fellow leaders, and the surrounding community. This year they bring you TEDxUBCO Unveiling Truths, with the hope that the event will encourage you to dig deeper into the truths of the world that surrounds us and confront truths that may not be comfortable to talk about.
