The 5th annual Interesting Vancouver is co-presented by The Museum of Vancouver on September 28th.
The 2012 event promises to be a truly multi-disciplinary, creative, unexpected, and inspirational evening of ideas and locally-sourced knowledge sharing for and by Vancouverites. Interesting Vancouver @MOV is for creative people, and requires an open mind. There is no theme, no organizing principal save for, “Things that are Interesting”.
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.”
This year's speakers and topics include:
Toby Barazzuol - lessons learned from the Downtown Eastside
Lloyd Bernhardt - adoption and capitalism
Aamer Haleem - reflections on a career in television
Ron Shewchuk - BBQ and how it can benefit the workplace
Roy White - an unexpected opportunity at an unlikely time
Tori Holmes - rowing across the Atlantic
Corinne Lea - bureaucracy and the limits it imposes on culture
Boris Mann - sailing the South Pacific in a tall ship
