TEDxToronto Adventures

TEDxToronto Adventures is a series of unique field trips and community experiences that will feature alumni speakers, community partners, and other change-makers from the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area. Our Adventures will provide a chance to explore big ideas in an intimate setting and build on our ongoing efforts to transport members of the TEDxToronto community into another world: from expert-led city tours focused on food, graffiti, and even crime, to a thought-provoking documentary screening and discussion on Indigenous land rights.
