St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador

The whispers of thousands of years of human history caress the shores of our province. They drift across the land, tracing footpaths, and now streets, that speak of the stories of creativity and innovation that have shaped our history. From solving problems through invention to managing social change through collaboration, we have seen creative communities through the ages.

While the province and its inhabitants have changed over the centuries, the constants that have shaped the unique culture and resilience of its people remain the same…the strong sense of community and the creativity necessary to survive and thrive in an unyielding environment.

The province is once more undergoing a transformation and recognizing its place in the world as a cultural and economic leader. TEDxFortTownshend 2013 is seeking the most creative ideas to build our communities.

As this transformation unfolds, newfound opportunities and challenges arise that call for a spirit of creativity, collaboration, and dialogue…and we hope you will join the conversation.
