Interesting Vancouver is a celebration of ordinary people who are doing extraordinary things in our community.

Every year (for the last 9 years), they’ve given 10 uber interesting Vancouverites a chance to tell their story and share (sometimes even demonstrate) their obsession/passion. They’ve literally had a kite flown inside their venue.

For their 10th anniversary show, happening November 10th at SFU Woodwards — their speaker line-up will include an award-winning stop motion artist, an architect, a poet turned lawyer, and a soulful Afro-Canadian singer/songwriter. But wait! Of course there’s more.

Here’s Interesting Vancouver’s 10-year anniversary speaker-line-up.
