By now, everyone has probably seen a TED talk. They're inspiring talks on a range of topics, given by some of the world's leading experts on science, technology and culture. TED stands for technology, entertainment and design, with many of the talks focusing on innovation in these areas.
One of our personal favourites is this one by Adam Driver, talking about his journey from US Marine to professional actor.
This year's TED event is taking place in Vancouver, but Irish audiences will be able to take part in the TED experience at the local Omniplex cinema.
The three day event kicks off on April 25th with the TED 2017 Opening Event, where audiences will be able to watch brand new TED talks being delivered for the first time ever.
The flagship event from TED2017 is the Prize Event - TED2017: The Future You. Imagine an inspiring, high impact idea that needs the support of a global community. For the first time, cinema audiences can become part of this community, watching this year’s TED prize winner receive a $1 million award towards a creative, bold wish to spark global change.
The final in the TED series at Omniplex is the TED2017 Highlights Exclusive. This event will give cinema goers a first of its kind look at the TED 2017 conference experience, showcasing the best of the week in which curiosity is sparked, minds are opened and worlds are shifted.
All three TED Events take place at Omniplex Mahon Point Cork, Omniplex Rathmines, Dublin, Omniplex Dundalk, Omniplex Limerick and Omniplex Sligo. TED2017 Opening Event takes place at 18.30 on Tuesday, April 25th, 2017. TED2017: The Future You Prize Event takes place at 18.30 on Thursday, April 27th, 2017.
