Sunday OCT 16, 5:30 PM
Isabel Bader Theatre, 91 Charles Street West, Toronto (FREE EVENT)
This Town Hall Meeting enthusiastically throws open the door to the city. The City will be the “Toronto School” classroom for the evening. Here members of the class will explore the influences of soft power in civic discourse, cultural change and collective intelligence. For the last year the McLuhan Centre for Culture and Technology has been engaged in a community building exercise of consultations, Monday Night Seminars, workshops, labs and salons under the banner of “City as Classroom”. These activities and the Town Hall Meeting are designed to embrace the shaping influence of arts, cultural, civil society, business and industry and emerging communities within the city. From the Town Hall to the halls of learning and back again, the Toronto School will be envisioned as a sustainable and value force having found its place in the city and the global community that has congregated in Toronto for the conference.
