In a city that is both a paradise and affordable, where technology collides with nature, and luxury lives blocks from extreme poverty, this refracted view of our skyline underscores one fact that there is no single way of looking at things. Essential Designs was a proud community partner for this event and look forward to many TEDxVancouver talks in the future. At TEDx Vancouver 2017 hosted at the ever impressive Playhouse located in gorgeous Downtown Vancouver, we invited you to celebrate the many lenses through which we can see the world. Many speakers from all over spoke to a select few individuals for an experience like no other through Distortion.
