Darcy Turenne is known internationally for her athletics but also more recently as a filmmaker as well. She started working in television as a presenter for the globally syndicated travel/adventure show Ride Guide, and has been featured in hundreds of publications worldwide, including Rolling Stone and Men's Journal. Darcy's thesis film at Royal Roads Univeristy, The Eighth Parallel, brought her to Indonesia, where she documented the lives of five female action-sport athletes, and the impact sport had on their lives.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
