**Limited tickets available for this evening, on sale September 3, online and by telephone at 604-736-4431. We sold out in 2008, 2009, 2010 & 2011 so procrastinators be warned - 2012 will be another sold out event.**
The evening's aim is to impart new knowledge, things you’ve never known, or thought about. Open up parallel thinking ports. Activate parts of your brain that for even the brainiest person may have been neglected or unexplored. There will be a degree of spontaneity, unexpected moments, and learnings. It is a splendid collage of interesting ideas and passionate people.
The audience is as interesting as the speakers. It will be a mix of artists, photographers, lawyers, librarians, social marketers, micro finance specialists, university professors, accountants, visual effects artists, journalists, marketing strategists, and more. The people sitting around you will be just as interesting as those on stage. Sounds pretty interesting eh?
Be warned: Interesting Vancouver provides an extraordinary lack of career advancement opportunities. It only promises to be “Interesting.”
For 2012, we've lined up a BBQ champion, a middle aged male dancer, a coffee guru turned adoptive dad, a tech startup who spent a year on a tall ship, a tv host, a woman who rowed across the Atlantic, an entrepreneur turned advocate, and an entrepreneur changing the lives of people living and working in the downtown east side.
