McLuhan Monday ‘The Net’

You’re invited to engage in conversation with artists, scholars, and citizens who explore the context of different media from the past, present and future. Stuart MacKay will be presenting the history of French Minitel and Marco Adria asks us, “_How has digital media changed how we experience privacy and security in the world? What effects are still playing a role today in the global theatre?”_

McLuhan Literati give context and history to our Media Seminar guest Stacey Cann, local artist and leader of the community. Stacey Cann will lead us through a discussion called Networked Art that will explore the economy of traditional arts vs artist run centres in Canada.
