TJ Dawe writes, performs, directs, and creates new theatre pieces. Based in Vancouver, he’s been touring theatre and comedy festivals in Canada and the US for 13 years, with no signs of slowing down. He has six published plays and a humour book. He perpetually juggles a dozen or so new projects, and blogs a lot at beamsandstruts.com—a magazine for hungry brains and thirsty souls.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
