The TEDxIVC event originally slated to be held at IVC's PAC has been moved to Santa Ana's Yost Theater.
The move has inspired a GoFundMe campaign to provide for free tickets to attendees.
In their appeal, the organizers explain the value of the program but also lodge a number of complaints about IVC:
TEDxIVC is a licensed TEDx event that's been in development since January, 2019, approved and supported by IVC President Glenn Roquemore. Unfortunately, the IVC Administration completely changed during the end of 2019, with directors and administrators being fired, of which included the IVC President. TEDxIVC received major push back from the new administration, losing us sponsors/partners, exploiting us with major costs that they kept adding with the venue, A/V equipment, and miscellaneous expenses that were previously free. We also had to deal with a lot of abuse coming from the director of the venue who disregarded this event for a prolonged period of time, treated us with contempt, and resorted to threats and intimidation tactics to subjugate us.Yikes.
