Gary Yarbrough speaks about the power of street art and public space and its effect on humanity to spark reflection and its ability to transcend socio-economic boundaries in society.
Gary is very passionate about street art and as a recent Sociology and Urban Studies graduate, he’s interested in exploring ways to make public space more accessible and meaningful to all. Along with three other UBC alumni, Gary launched the popular street art app “Curb,” which uses crowdsourcing to discover and promote street art.

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)
