Everyone knows you can put your hands on a lot of expertise down at the library. This Saturday, however, is a strictly hands-off-the-experts proposition (unless, of course, you want to shake their hands afterward).
TEDx Calgary takes up residence in the John Dutton Theatre at the Central Library for a discussion on the future of cities. The prime focus is on the City 2.0 concept, which deals with “art, education, food, health, housing, play, public space and safety.”
The Calgary event features a roster of speakers that includes Kevin McNichol, executive director of HomeFront; James Boettcher, creator of YYCFoodTrucks; and Terry Rock (pictured), president and CEO of Calgary Arts Development.
The Calgary event is one of several taking place on Oct. 13, in what TED is calling “a day of urban inspiration.” Those who are sufficiently inspired might want to apply for one of the remaining $10,000 grants that TED is awarding this year.
Tickets are $30. To get yours go to the TEDx Calgary website.
