McLuhan Salon: #MeToo & The Arts
In collaboration with Royal Ontario Museum
Wed, September 26 2018, 7:00 PM
Royal Ontario Museum, Bronfman Hall, Level 2
Presented by the St. Michael’s College - the McLuhan's intellectual home in the University of Toronto - and its popular Book & Media Studies program, in conjunction with several high-level academic and cultural institutions, a new series of McLuhan Salons takes place from September 2018 to April 2019 in 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.
For this inaugural McLuhan Salon, we have teamed up with ROM Royal Ontario Museum. Leaders in the arts community involved for an in-depth panel discussion on gender and power dynamics in the context of art institutions and the role they play in light of the larger debate concerning art and artists during the time of the #MeToo, Time's Up, and #AfterMeToo movements.
The McLuhan Salon series is generously supported by the William and Nona Heaslip Foundation.
The event is free and open to the public.

About the McLuhan Salons: Inspired by the innovative thinking of Marshall McLuhan, the Salons series is committed to make McLuhan’s ideas step 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.
