DCMTL TEDxMontreal Central District TED talks



DCMTL is proud to announce that TEDxMontreal will be hosting their 4th edition of TEDx talks on November 12, 2016 at DCMTL Space, our new arts, culture and events centre in Central District.

TEDxMontreal would love to have you participate on this exciting production day, where 12-14 incredibly talented Montrealers will gift viewers with the talk of their life to be filmed for the TEDx online community. Each idea has been carefully selected to highlight an amazing innovation or insight from the Montreal scene. The goal is to be the multidisciplinary idea platform for all Montrealers to spark curiosity and transform ideas into actions – and of course, we need to you be a part of the action!

If you would like to take part in the amazing “live” experience of seeing TEDx talks brought to life, apply now to participate. Attendees will get the unique chance to witness the creation of our 2016 talks, mingle with speakers and create new relationships with like-minded Montrealers who all have a shared desire in witnessing the creation of Ideas Worth Spreading and a passion for new perspectives.

Invitations and waiting list

Each invitation to attend the TEDxMontreal “live” experience is carefully curated by the TEDx team.
Their goal? To ensure an audience that represents the idea diversity of the events speakers.

TEDx Montreal believes that the right audience mix will create a receptive and warm presentation environment needed for all our speakers to succeed in giving the TEDxtalk of their lives. Connecting with the “live” audience is the key to their success on YouTube and hopefully also on TED.com. As a bonus to promoting the sharing of ideas online, we hope to foster the development of new multidisciplinary collaborations between our talented mix of attendees and/or speakers and TEDxMontreal staff.
