What’s the Theme?
TEDxVancouver 2010: “The Fine Line”
The event’s theme, “The Fine Line” is a subject perfectly suited to Vancouver, a city of immense contradiction and fine lines everywhere. Vancouver is a place where East meets West, where you never know if it’s going to rain or shine; a city where you can turn a corner and experience extravagant wealth and crippling poverty on the same city block. These interstices reflect the sometimes contradictory and dichotomous points of view in our rapidly changing world- ranging from art and technology to the environment and social issues.
Our goal is to demonstrate how diverse viewpoints are a catalyst for cutting edge technology, world class research, great works of art and social change. Like TED’s own mission, “The Fine Line” represents the space where ideas are born.
