Monday Night Webinars

During this time of physical distancing, we all miss the joy of getting together, engaging in authentic real-time conversations, ultimately being part of a living community. 

Well… the idea is simple. In response to the state of physical distancing and isolation, it’s time to bring back the McLuhan’s tradition of weekly Monday Night sessions in a brand new format: The Monday Night Webinars!

Starting this Monday night, April 27, 8:00-10:00 PM EST, Paolo Granata will be hosting – live on the MARSHALL MCLUHAN Facebook Group and simultaneously on the McLuhan Institute YouTube Channel – an online weekly panel, informal and informative, to better understand who we are, what matters to us, and where we might be going in this rapidly changing world. In a playful, relaxed, and experimental online format, a panel of participants – academics, artists, designers, raconteurs, innovators, and thinkers – will explore every week the mosaic of the metaphoric global village in light of the current global crisis, as a source of knowledge and inspiration.

The Monday Night Webinars will be an opportunity for an open discussion, a creative and respectful dialogue for making sense of our contemporary media landscape and for releasing the energy of new and outrageous ideas, innovative thought, and transformative understanding and action in response to the current social scenario. 

Each Monday Night Webinar will commence with an impromptu and probative discussion, where participants are encouraged to sketch a picture of current opportunities and challenges for human well-being. We will also engage the audience, getting feedback and comments, to put forward innovative solutions for improving our global human condition which we wish to explore. 

Join us every Monday night, starting Monday April 27, 8:00-10:00 PM EST, live on the MARSHALL MCLUHAN Facebook Group or the McLuhan Institute Channel on YouTube. Follow the one of the links below:-
