The Scarborough Arts Council and The Centre for Creative Communications at Centennial College are doing something neat—they’re recording podcasts about technology in front of a live studio audience.
The lecture series being recorded is called OPEN SPACE, and the upcoming two-part event, entitled The Future is Now, features two smart and interesting people talking about digital culture, technology and society, and the effects of combing these things.
On October 16 (that’s tomorrow!) from noon until one p.m., Gabe Sawhey (of [murmur], amongst other things) will be be talking about how digital culture rewrites history, and from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday the 17th, Stuart J. Murray (a Ryerson English prof) will speak about how digital culture is reshaping the way we think about ourselves, our relationships with others, and our shared world.
This may be your only chance to hear people talk about technology without using visuals (podcasts are audio-only, so the lectures will be too), and there will be time for questions, so you may get to have your lovely voice recorded as well. Admission is free; the recording will take place at the The Centre for Creative Communications, Centennial College, 951 Carlaw Avenue (Near Pape and Mortimer).
Fore more information, please visit the OPEN SPACE website. And if you can’t make it, you can listen to the audio later, of course.
