Piazza McLuhan Digifest 2016

April 28 – 30, 2016 at Corus Quay, Toronto

Explore the legacy of Canada’s very own Marshall McLuhan at Digifest!

Digifest and the McLuhan Centre for Culture and Technology present the Piazza McLuhan. The Piazza is a gathering place for Digifest attendees to experience and explore the changing and confounding world around us built on the legacy of Marshall McLuhan.

Marshall McLuhan was one of the most charismatic, controversial and original thinkers of our time whose remarkable perception propelled him onto the international stage. Marshall McLuhan is universally regarded as the father of communications and media studies and prophet of the information age

Students in the Interaction Design and Development as well as the Interactive Media Management programs will feature the “Interactive Bar” in the Piazza. The “Interactive Bar” will have interactive demos that feature technology in a way that will honour its past, celebrate the present and envision the future.

The McLuhan Centre for Culture and Technology is an initiative of the Coach House Institute, Faculty of Information at the University of Toronto, in partnership with the University of St. Michael’s College in the University of Toronto and the Institute of Communication, Culture, Information and Technology, University of Toronto, Mississauga.
