Interesting Vancouver

September 29, 2015

Interesting Vancouver is a lecture series with a twist, celebrating "ordinary people doing extraordinary things" in the Vancouver area.

The people that speak might not be well-known in their fields, and at least one hasn't even graduated high school! The one thing they do have in common is their desire to share their hobbies, passions and obsessions with people like you. 

Speakers for 2015 include a lawyer turned children's author; a champion pinball wizard; a teenager who cooks better than most chefs and many more.

Cost: $25, includes light catered reception; cash bar available

Date: November 6

Time: 6:00PM - 11:00PM

Location: SFU Woodwards, 149 West Hastings, Vancouver

Tickets can be purchased on Eventbrite.
