MULTIPLICITY — Elevation. Imagination. Inspiration.
Presented by Mountain Life Media – A special flagship fundraiser for the Spearhead Huts Project.
Like a TEDTalk® on adrenalin, MULTIPLICITY is visual storytelling at its most adventurous. Delivered by eight unique world-class athletes, explorers and outdoor personalities — this one-night, packed-house multimedia extravaganza is designed to resonate as much as it entertains with a mix of film, photography and truly engaging narratives.
A flagship fundraiser for the Spearhead Huts Project, the event premiered in 2013 and was immediately pegged “the most underrated night” at Whistler’s World Ski & Snowboard Festival. The secret is out now and MULTIPLICITY has grown into one of the crowd favourites in the WSSF‘s eclectic arts line-up, and is also considered one of Whistler’s most inspiring events.
“Multiplicity’s recurring themes grow more cohesive every year, bringing the experiences of the speakers to life in an intimate setting,” says Vince Shuley, photojournalist/author at large. “At Multiplicity 2015 I even learned that there’s a few things Will Gadd can’t do.”
