The Cossart Exchange has joined TED as an Associate Member. This means we get a live webfeed of the entire conference, and get to share the experience of TED as it unfolds. Please join us for this exclusive opportunity to hear what some of the world's most interesting people have to say about the global issues facing our world. With speakers ranging from Jamie Oliver to Bill Gates, the event is sure to be inspiring and engaging.

The Cossart Exchange has inviTED local inspirational individuals to come and be a part of each of the TED2010 sessions. As well, the Exchange space will be activaTED with a number of thought provoking activities, happening throughout the 4 day conference, and the public is encouraged to come by and check them out at our new space in Jackson Square, downtown Hamilton. We are located near the main food court and the Hamilton Public Library mall entrance. It is on the second floor, next to Liaison College.

For IgniTED’s full schedule of speakers and times, please visit www.cossartexchange.com, and click on the IgniTED icon. The entire event is absolutely free, but spaces are very limited due to TED rules. Reserve a spot today before it’s too late by emailing rsvp@imperialcottoncentre.com.

The Cossart Exchange is officially opening its doors!

The Grand Opening of The Exchange will also be taking place during the conference. The event is happening Friday February 12, 6pm-midnight, and the night will include a licensed bar and appetizers, art, musical entertainment, a performance by The Parahumans & McMaster Dance Company, and a chance to meet the participants of The Cossart Exchange. This night also falls on the February James Street North Art Crawl, so stop by nice and early, then head out to catch the energy of the street, and return to celebrate with us well into the evening. Don’t miss us at 7:15pm as we cut the official red ribbon, and thank our sponsors, supporters, staff, and participants for helping make this project happen.

The Cossart Exchange has been started as an incubation centre to help support emerging ideas, organizations, businesses and creative entrepreneurs in the Hamilton community.
