For people who enjoy TED talks, big ideas and great communication, this meetup is an opportunity to take TED talk learning to the next level. Through sharing your thoughts and perspectives with others, great conversations often emerge, sometimes in transforming ways.
You'll be encouraged to relate the content of the talks to your own life and experiences, and your ideas can be strengthened by sharing them with fellow group members. It's a fun way to meet positive people, adopt a sense of belonging, and embrace life long learning in a relaxed environment.
Doors open at 7:00 pm and things get underway at 7:30 pm with a brief introduction before watching the TED video on a large 65" HDTV, followed by facilitated discussion and Q&A. While dialogue is encouraged over debate, diverse perspectives are welcome.
Watch, discuss, and get inspired.
PS: If you have not seen a TED talk before and would like to know what one is... visit http://www.ted.com/about/our-organization.
All are welcome. Feel free to bring a friend (especially if they are new in town), and if you need a ride, just send a message and one can be arranged.
NOTE: The RSVPs here represent only some folks who may attend as this event is advertised through several other on-line and print channels.
LOCATION: Our community centreplace located at the bottom of Bayfield St., next to the parking lot across the street from the Salvation Army.
PS: Though there is no cost for this activity, a goodwill donation of $5 is recommended (for those who are able) and gratefully appreciated, and help to continue providing this space, activities, events and programs to the surrounding community. Tax receipts can be issued for amounts of $20 or more.
You can also visit our Products 4 Purpose store in-house or online (http://www.products4purpose.ca) and make a purchase that benefits our meaningful partner organizations, gifted artisans and local operations. Your support is gratefully appreciated!

Creating Connection Barrie is a charter member of Creating Connection Canada, a network of welcoming and inclusive communities committed to sharing authentic conversation, promoting meaningful activities and fostering holistic mind-body practices.
By welcoming and accepting people of every walk of life, culture, faith or tradition (including those who identify as “more spiritual than religious”, humanist, agnostic, or searching for meaning), the collective experience transcends the sum of our individual ways of being, and meaningful community is formed.
