TED 2016: Dream

TED 2016: Dream
2/15/2016 12:00 AM
Special Fathom Feature: A LIVE broadcast of the opening night of the TED 2016 Conference featuring the world’s brightest thinkers and idea-generators. TED 2016: Dream Opening Night will be broadcast LIVE to select cinemas nationwide for a thrilling one-night event on Monday, February 15 starting at 5pm on the west coast (running approximately 2 hours). Tickets are $20 at Fathom Events.

Hosted by TED’s curator Chris Anderson, the theatrical screening of this event will debut the first evening of TED 2016: Dream live from Vancouver, Canada, featuring world-renowned thinkers, artists and storytellers who will share their “ideas worth spreading” about the greatest dreams we are capable of dreaming. What emerges is a spirit of wonder and optimism that represents the world at its best.

This event will be a one-of-a-kind opportunity to join in the experience along with the 1,800 attendees in Vancouver – the world’s leading thinkers and doers who have won every international prize of excellence from Nobel Laureates, to Pulitzer Prize authors, to Oscar® winners.

The makeup of that opening session is pretty special: the evening kicks off with a TEDx star, 10-yr-old Ishita Katyal (new addition to the lineup) who will share her dream for the future she is inheriting. From there we have a spectacular vision of the future from the head of Alphabet/Google’s X group Astro Teller, an amazing and slightly terrifying biotech talk from Riccardo Sabatini, the incomparable Shonda Rhimes (showrunner for some of television's hottest current programs), a return to the TED stage from the multi-million-views TED speaker Dan Pallotta (new addition to the lineup) and a closing performance/talk from the iconic choreographer Bill T Jones. Additionally, TED has a couple of other wonderful surprises up its sleeves. **Please note that the talent is always subject to change but this is the current line-up that TED has released.
