Sometimes the greyest part of winter can leave you feeling like your brain’s gone into hibernation. Which is why we’re so excited about PEP talks, a promising new speaker series to “inspire great parents”. It will be running this spring, with net proceeds going to support the Vancouver International Children’s Festival.
Inspired in part by TED talks, PEP brings high profile speakers to Vancouver to explore the issues involved in raising kids for the new millennium. Sessions are designed to be informative and thought provoking, and are aimed at parents and educators alike (the acronym stands for Parental Educational Program).
PEP talks will be hosted at the Vancouver Playhouse Theatre on March 7th, April 10th, May 15th, and June 12th, at 7:30 pm, and ticket prices are either $130 for the entire series, or $35 per speaker (don’t forget, net proceeds go to support the Vancouver International Children’s Festival, which gets started on May 27th). Think of it as an evening out for your brain with the bonus that you’ll be supporting a fantastic charity: gotta say, we’re feeling peppier already!
