We’ve curated Uncharted to be a series of four connected evenings that form a map for our collective future. Join us for all four with a Season Pass!

Tickets are available individually, but these four events are meant to build and connect off of one another to provide the whole map.

The world today is something we’ve never experienced before, and these uncharted waters are making us ask some big questions. How can we see the larger picture, find sources of hope and realize the power each of us has to chart a better course?

Uncharted spans four thoughtfully curated evenings where you’ll encounter critical new ideas and perspectives, be inspired to think differently, and engage in meaningful dialogue with fellow curious souls.

This won’t be a Zoom event. Expect professionally produced TEDxToronto talks, a cutting-edge live event platform, and a host who represents the best of Toronto guiding you through a thought-provoking experience.

So take the evening off and join us to be inspired by the most fascinating changemakers the GTHA has to offer.

Join us for a season of events

Each of our four events has been designed to connect with the others and take you on a journey -- from understanding where we are, to discovering our shared connections, and charting a new course.
