Indian Summer Festival 2019

Tiffin Talks: A lunchtime ideas series

Tiffin Talks is a five-part ideas series showcasing a diverse group of thought leaders, artists, innovators, and changemakers, gathering to share ideas and a meal together. Every Tiffin Talk features South Asian and Indigenous people in conversation with each other on a wide range of topics.

Located at PAUSE, Indian Summer Festival’s outdoor pavilion gazing out onto the mountains and the Burrard Inlet, these longtable lunches delivered hot on-site in Indian-style tiffins, will return you to your day both nourished and fed.

In the spirit of turning strangers into friends, this is an opportunity to register for lunch for one. Listen to brilliant presenters, then dine and converse about new ideas surrounded by art, land, and ocean.

Each lunch is limited to 20 people. Book your spots early!

Tiffin Talks are by donation, sliding scale. Fee will be waived upon request, no one turned away for lack of funds. (Pending availability, pre-registration is still required).

All Tiffin Talk meals are vegetarian. When registering, please proceed to checkout where you will be prompted to select a vegan or gluten free option as desired.


Tiffin Talks is a five-part series. The event series includes:

Monday July 8 Tiffin Talk: Walking in Our Finest

Tuesday July 9 Tiffin Talk: All the World’s a Stage

Wednesday July 10 Tiffin Talk: Art on the Inside

Thursday July 11th Tiffin Talk: Laughter for the Dark Days

In socio-political or personal times when we don’t know whether to laugh or cry, can humour carry us through? Lunch and laugh with Little Mosque on the Prairie creator Zarqa Nawaz, writer and comedian Charles Demers, and award-winning author Carleigh Baker as they discuss the creation and curation of humour with moderator Anna Ling Kaye.

How to prepare for the weather: This location is almost always windy! Bring your hat/sunscreen for the sun, and we also encourage you to bring a light jacket for the wind.

What is the refund policy for this event?

Refunds are not available for any Indian Summer Festival events.


What is the accessibility of this event?

Mobility Access: the PAUSE Pavilion is located adjacent to the Bard on the Beach parking lot. From the parking lot there is a short distance across a gravel path, or grass. The Pavilion itself has a grass “floor.” There is stool and bench seating provided onsite.

Parking: There is a parking lot directly adjacent to PAUSE, with a number of accessible parking spaces. For more information about this parking lot, and for directions, see here.

Transit: Plan your trip. Address: 1600 Whyte Ave

Please note that the PAUSE Pavilion is not close to transit - nearest bus stop is 800m away.

Bathrooms: are inside the Museum of Vancouver, which is a 4 minute walk across a grass field, or a 6 minute walk on sidewalk.

Low Vision: This is low vision friendly programming, as the programming itself is auditory.

Seating Plan: The PAUSE Pavilion is equipped with many wooden stools and built-in bench seating. The seats are not cushioned, and do not have seat backs.

Priority seating and early entry is available for this event for people with invisible disability, low vision, or chronic pain. We can arrange this onsite, or contact us to plan in advance.

Be scent-sensitive: While Indian Summer Festival emails all ticket holders requesting that attendees refrain from wearing scented products at all of our events, we do not enforce this policy. PAUSE is an outdoor venue, in an area where there is often wind (this is a common kite-flying site due to the wind often present). While we are not informed about the pesticides used by the Parks Board, we do not have any scented products involved in the programming at this venue.

If you have any questions, concerns, additions or corrections regarding this information please email engage@indiansummerfest.ca
