TEDxSFU is an independently organized TEDx conference held every year in Vancouver, B.C. This year, we are celebrating our ten-year anniversary with the theme: Unravel. Our conference is organized entirely by student and alumni volunteers from Simon Fraser University, who dedicate their time in promoting TED’s vision of ideas worth spreading. At this conference, speakers will be unraveling various topics, register for the event to hear their TEDxSFU talks! Though our conference will be different this year, your experience of being able to listen, interact, and discuss with one another about something you learned from our two-day conference, will all be worthwhile.

About this year's theme
TEDxSFU Unravel explores a bottomless cavern of ideas by encouraging individuals to discover and dive deeper into various thoughts, understandings and approaches. Ideas can lie deeper than surface level, in order to go beyond the surface we choose to follow the paths of perspectives as stories and discoveries as they unfold. We dive into the details, the why, and the stories behind. We seek to investigate and decipher various topics. As the 10th anniversary of TEDxSFU we unravel the history and highlights of the past years while delving into a vast sea of ideas. Unravel ideas with us.
