McLuhan Salons

Curated by Paolo Granata and David Nostbakken


The University of Toronto is stepping out of the university and into the city, to better understand who we are, what matters to us, and where we might be going in a networked and rapidly changing world.
The McLuhan Salons will take place in six different dynamic city locations further dissolving the boundaries of the university and the city in bringing the multi-disciplinary multi-practice approaches to bear made famous by Marshall McLuhan. 
These six salons are committed to breaking down the silos of academic disciplines, the university and society, public and private enterprise, art, business, civil society and individuals in order to release the energy of new and outrageous ideas, innovative thought, and transformative understanding and action.
The McLuhan Salons position the city as instructive in rethinking the larger interconnected global village. The collectivity of our global thought, actions and generational evolution are the defining principles the global human condition which we wish to explore.
Each Salon will commence with moderated probative discussion within a panel of top leaders and thinkers, and will engage the audience.
