A Shift In Thinking

Sometimes it starts as a quiet rumble. Sometimes, it’s as powerful as a lightning strike. Other times, it’s the voice of someone telling you their story, inspiring you with their words to discover, change, and grow. At TEDxBearCreekPark, 15 ideas from the community are coming together, unified by the power of a Shift in Thinking, to inspire and support the growth of ideas in Surrey and the Lower Mainland.

TEDxBearCreekPark 2020

TEDxBearCreekPark is back bigger and better and we are making a significant step up! This year's event will take place on Saturday, February 29th, 2020 at the beautiful Bell Performing Arts Centre in Surrey. The theatre has over 1,000 seats and we plan to fill them all!

TED – Ideas Worth Spreading

Devoted to spreading ideas, TED has a reputation for short, powerful talks that not only inspire, but address universal topics and bring people together. They’ve created a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture and giving them a platform to share their passion, as well as their way of looking at the world with an audience that spans the globe.

TEDx, An Independent Event

Bringing the power of TED to local communities, TEDx events are independently organized by curious individuals who are looking to capture the power of ideas in their own community. Operating under a license granted by TED, TEDx events feature live speakers who spark conversations and a shift in thinking.
