New for 2017: TEDxWinnipeg Patron Tickets

New for 2017: TEDxWinnipeg Patron Tickets

TEDxWinnipeg now has two types of ticket available, at two different pricing levels.

Up until 2016, TEDxWinnipeg had never charged a fee to attend. Some years this was very difficult to accomplish, as we needed sponsors who were willing to pitch in and foot the entire bill for the event, as we had no other sources of revenue. For 2016, we needed to start charging a nominal $25 registration fee for the event, which was still growing. Ultimately, last year we had to turn away far more guests than we could accept, simply due to venue capacity.

There were few dry eyes in the house, and the talk received a standing ovation; the video is below. Through this talk, Wilma, her work, and her story became known to Malcolm Gladwell, who met with her and told her story to an international audience in his 2013 book David and Goliath.

Ottawa Citizen: What astronauts can teach us about aging

Ottawa Citizen: What astronauts can teach us about aging

When Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield returned to Earth after nearly five months in space in 2013, he described his physical state as “tottering around like an old man.”

Hadfield, in his mid-50s at the time, was experiencing the accelerated aging that life in space brings on. It is so intense, that astronauts usually need help getting out of their spacecrafts when they return.
