    With just a few days left to apply to attend this year’s TEDxToronto conference, we would like to share some exciting news. On October 22nd, the conference will open with a dedicated performance by The National Ballet of Canada.

    Robert Binet, National Ballet Choreographic Associate, will speak about ballet’s relationship to issues in contemporary society and present excerpts from his recent work, Orpheus Becomes Eurydice. Never seen before in Toronto, the piece explores the ideas of connection, communication and loss embedded in the Greek myth of Orpheus. One of the top international ballet companies, The National Ballet of Canada is renowned for its diverse classical and contemporary repertoire. With 70 dancers and its own orchestra, the company has been led by Artistic Director Karen Kain since 2005.

    AFTER PARTY 2014

    With just over a week remaining until October 2nd, now is the time to purchase your ticket to The Pursuit of Greatness, the official TEDxToronto After Party!

    After an exciting day of talks and performances at TEDxToronto 2014, we hope that you’ll join us for an evening to remember at CUBE Nightclub. Not only will you get the chance to connect with all of our fantastic speakers, performers, partners and delegates, you’ll also get to experience a vibrant night of music and surprises.

    As you arrive at CUBE, you’ll be greeted by the Sidewalk Crusaders. The seven-piece busking band creates unique covers of popular tunes, putting their own jazz-inspired spin on songs.

    Upon entering CUBE, you’ll feel as though you’ve been transported back to the 1920s, as our decor and entertainment will be influenced by The Great Gatsby.

    From 9 to 11 p.m., you’ll hear live music from Shugga, one of Toronto’s best known funk and R&B cover bands, while you enjoy cocktails and networking. We’ll also have complimentary snacks available from Poutini’s, Maynards, Bad Monkey, Cadbury and Trident.

    Later on at 11 p.m., we’ll amp up the party on the dance floor with the musical stylings of DJ Divsa. A well-respected Toronto DJ, he spins many genres, including hip hop, R&B, house, electro, reggae, soca, mash-up, top 40 and dance. Divsa has also performed alongside such musicians as Nas, Usher, Pharrell Williams and Steve Aoki.

    After Party tickets are now available for public purchase at a cost of $30 each. If you’re attending TEDxToronto during the day, please note that your conference ticket does NOT include admittance to the After Party — tickets to this event must be purchased separately.

    We hope to see you at The Pursuit of Greatness, where we’ll celebrate the magic of TEDxToronto 2014.

    Please note that our After Party is a 19+ event. Valid government-issued photo I.D. and a copy of your ticket will be required for entry into CUBE (314 Queen Street West). Cash bars will be available. Please drink responsibly, and do not drink and drive.
