Indian Summer Festival’s Closing Night kicks off at 7:30pm with our favourite speaker series, 5×15, followed by Constellations featuring a mix of musical delights from 9:30pm onwards. This ticket includes both events for an entire evening of cultural feasting.
5×15 VANCOUVER | Five Speakers, Fifteen Minutes. Magic.
‘If 5×15’s packed soirees feel like an evening of offline, communal surfing, it’s due to the eclectic menu of speakers.’ – The New York Times
5×15 is a speakers series that originated in London and has since spread to New York and Milan. It features five stellar speakers, speaking for fifteen minutes each on a topic they are deeply passionate about. The only rules: the talk should be unscripted, and fifteen minutes long. 5×15 has hosted speakers such as Gloria Steinem, Ben Okri, Brian Eno, Malcolm Gladwell, Eve Ensler and Ahdaf Soueif. For the past three years, Indian Summer Festival has hosted the only Canadian iteration of 5×15.
We return for the fourth edition in 2017 with an all star lineup including:
Award-winning Pakistani-British novelist Kamila Shamsie
Celebrated graphic artist Molly Crabapple
Writer and former revolutionary Carmen Rodriguez
Comedian Kalyani Pandya
And a special guest to be announced!
7:00pm: Doors Open
Be a part of this crowd favourite. Following the talk is our roaring closing party. Stay for a dance and make it a night out!
This event has been made possible thanks to support from the BC Arts Council.
