TEDx Comox Valley: Revealing hidden local talents – May 23rd at NIC at 7pm

Tedx image cvAnother TEDx Comox Valley is coming to North Island College on May 23, at 7pm sharp. This has proven to be a popular event and seating will be based on a first come, first served basis. All speakers are Comox Valley-ites and represent the breadth of talent - hidden and otherwise - that exist here.

How does industry, agriculture, environmental awareness and music interface to showcase the diverse talents in our Valley? Come to TEDx Comox Valley to find out! Confirmed speakers for the evening’s event include Andrew Gower from Wedler Engineering, talking about outsourcing, manufacturing, and pollution with the aim of illustrating the level of industry we would need in the Valley to support the current level of consumerism, Thierry Vrain from Innisfree Farm, Meaghan Cursons as our community animateur speaking about community democractic engagement and its critical importance to “the commons”, and Paul Horgen presenting the Blue Carbon project in the K’omoks estuary. Emily Spiller will be the featured performer.

The event’s organizer, Sonya Jenssen, is excited to once again be involved in an evening that inspires audience members to think about an idea from a new perspective. There will be something for everyone to sink their teeth into, promises Jenssen.
