Chat Live is an ongoing program at Capilano U. that is running once again this Fall 2010. Chat Live involves a series of informal discussions over lunch (always on Thursday, 11:30-12:30) on Thursdays throughout the term, covering a variety of topics from Facebook to human rights, from art to genocide.
Chat Live details and website here.
This term, the CultureNet program is sponsoring one of the sessions: “Bring the Change: Exploring Art and Social Change.”
Our session’s topic will be the broad spectrum of visual, musical, and written works (the creations of Picasso, Jenny Holzer, Michael Moore, Radiohead, Diego Rivera, and Bruce Mau to name only a few) that have harnessed art + technology as a spark for small- and large-scale political changes in our world.
We are running our sessions on three different dates:
Thursday, Sepember 30 · 11:30am – 12:30pm
“Bring the Change: Art and Social Change”
Co-Hosted by Brian Ganter, Charles Macaulay, and James Siddall
