TEDxToronto 2011 After Party Performers


The TEDxToronto 2011 After Party has officially sold out of general admission tickets. If you would still like to attend, a limited number of donation tickets valued at $50 are still available for purchase on our Event Registration Page.

Curious for what's to come? We promise a night of art, entertainment and conversation – with curated performers, installations and music. The Steam Whistle Brewery will be transformed into a Dark Carnival of the Unexpected. Carrying through the theme of redefinition, we're inviting you to gather with like-minded TEDxToronto delegates to connect and build on the redefining ideas shared throughout the day's conference. The performances are set to be a mesmerizing display of culture and performance art.
