City as Classroom: Inaugural Monday Night Seminar
November 2, 6 pm – 8 pm
Dear all,

You are invited to the Inaugural Monday Night Seminar, with
Lauren O’Neil (Journalist and TV head, CBC News), Tonya Surman (Chief Executive Officer, Centre for Social Innovation), Mark Surman (Executive Director, Mozilla). Special guest Kathy (Hutchon) Kawasaki, co-author of City as Classroom (McLuhan M., McLuhan E., Hutchon K., 1977).

The new Monday Night Seminar series, called “
City as Classroom: Ideas Without Walls”, steps outside the university classroom walls and into the city itself as a source of inspiration, knowledge with access to remarkable people, who will meet with us to discuss the big ideas of our time.

All are invited to mix it up over refreshments with some of the brightest minds and practitioners exploring the quickly changing and confounding world around us.

The event is free and open to the public. You are encouraged to register on line:

We are looking forward to seeing you at the McLuhan Centre for Culture and Technology.
