TED Talks 2017: The Prize Event

June 1 at 7pm
Waterville Opera House, 1 Common Street

Running Time: Approximately 120 minutes

This is an HD broadcast, pre-recorded during the TED2017 conference in Vancouver, BC. 
TED2017 “The Future You”, will explore the deepest scientific and psychological insights, the latest medical advances, and thrilling new inventions (all mixed with a dose of ancient wisdom), and will ask questions about our present and future selves that we often don’t have time for. The program will feature a succession of extraordinary speakers – risk-takers, visionaries, celebrities, and an emerging generation of idea creators – who will deliver the “talk of their lives” in TED’s world famous TED Talk format.
Second Event: “The Prize Event”. Cinema-goers will get to watch with their communities as the TED Prize winner receives a $1 million award towards a creative, bold wish to spark global change. By investing in a powerful idea every year, the TED Prize accelerates progress toward solving some of the world’s most pressing problems. The session will also feature an update from a former TED Prize winner, as well as talks from exceptional TED speakers.

Tickets: $15 for single TED2017 event, $40 for all three TED2017 events (contact Box Office).
