Hi. We are TEDxVictoria. We independently organize idea-sharing TED-like events in Victoria, BC.
We gather and collaborate with leaders, thinkers, inventors, innovators, young minds, and wise hearts around Vancouver Island in order to offer them one day of engaging talks and unforeseen connections. We celebrate the challenge and inspiration that comes with new ideas, insights and innovations.

TEDxVictoria is created for and by Victoria, so we strive for inclusiveness and connection. Get in touch with us through Facebook and Twitter, follow along by joining our mailing list, or sign up to volunteer—there are many methods of participation. A community is only as strong and impactful as the people that make it.

Please join us in creating an event that can inspire action. Change is all around us, so let’s step into it with passion and intent.
