TEDxCentennialCollegeToronto returns to Centennial College on October 7, 2020. The event will be livestreamed and welcome local, national and global audiences from around the world.
Building on the theme of “On The Verge,” TEDxCentennialCollegeToronto speakers will engage participants in the ambiguous space between an idea and action; that is, the “in between” moments that trigger excitement, fear, frustration and infinite potential!
The webcast event will feature a dynamic roster of speakers who have made significant contributions in diverse fields as education, entrepreneurship, politics, fashion, sports and entertainment. Presenters include Izzy Camilleri, one of Canada’s leading fashion designers whose creations have dressed the likes of David Bowie, Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lopez and Meryl Streep; Matt Rubinoff, founder of Toronto’s shipping container market, STACKT, a cultural community hub recently awarded “Public Space of the Year;” and Tyrone “T-Rex” Edwards, the television host and visionary behind the 1 LOVE T.O. movement that galvanized Torontonians.
TEDx events are independently organized gatherings that feature live TED-like talks and performances to showcase the creative, innovative and transformative ideas of local communities. The goal of the TEDx program is to provide locally based platforms around the world that spark inspiration, provoke conversation and build community connections. Centennial’s involvement builds on the College’s unique tradition of re-imagining the possibilities for thinking, learning and doing.
