Viewing Parties

Viewing parties are intended to allow you to organize a group of people who won’t be at the live TEDxErie event, but will be watching it live at another designated venue using the TEDxErie webcast. You’re allowed to organize viewing parties around the TEDxErie webcast, except that attending the viewing party must be free of charge to guests.

If you are planning on hosting a viewing party for TEDxErie, please contact TEDxErie’s Lead Curator, Jonathan D’Silva at for details and to assist TEDxErie in its logistics and planning.

If you would like more information about one of the Livestream Viewing Parties, please contact Jonathan D’Silva at to obtain contact information for a particular location.
