A Map and List of All the Places Vancouverites Can Watch TED for Free

Posted by Knowlton Thomas

In what was hailed as "unprecedented access," TED is allowing its talks to be live-streamed for free. Tickets to attend in person cost more than CAD $8,000.

Here is a map of livestream locations via Google Maps.

“We’re thrilled to welcome TED to Vancouver and look forward to the range of innovative ideas and debate that will emerge from the week-long talks and presentations,” said Mayor Gregor Robertson. “Whether you’re a long-time TED fan or someone learning about it for the first time, you will have the opportunity to watch some of the world’s top minds present their ideas in community spaces across Vancouver.”
