TEDxSFU is an event held in Vancouver, BC promoting ideas worth spreading. The event organized entirely by student volunteers at Simon Fraser University. Although the event is licensed by TED, we are an independently organized event.
Mavericks, Rebels, Rivals, Contrary, Antithesis, Non-Conformist. TEDxSFU 2012 explores the theme, "Against the Grain". The idea for the theme Against the Grain came from the proverb "See no evil, speak no evil, hear no evil". By turning this into a positive principle, I wanted to give the message to people not to turn a blind eye to the situations around us. To see the world through a different lens allows us to do things out of the ordinary and construct real results that can change the world.
