September 13

During the pandemic, who among us didn’t turn to entertainment media and the arts to reduce the feeling of isolation and get through the day? At the same time, we missed opportunities to gather together to experience arts and culture in shared spaces. Now, as we look ahead after the last two and a half years, arts and arts and culture organizations can play an important role in moving forward. What have these organizations learned that will reshape the sector of today?

At The Walrus Talks: Reconnecting Arts and Culture, professionals from across the industry representing the fields of visual art, comedy, film and television, literature, theatre, and more come together to share how the pandemic has changed the way they view their sector, the stories they tell, and the audiences who experience their work.

Join us in Halifax or online for an evening of talks about an industry that is an essential part of Canada.

Featuring seven-minute talks from:

Reneltta Arluk, Director of Indigenous Arts, Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity

Katie Boland, Actress, Writer, Director

Peter Hinton-Davis, Theatre and Opera Director, Playwright

Ian Kamau, Artist, Writer, Designer

Owen ‘O’Sound’ Lee, Musician

Dr. Syrus Marcus Ware, Artist, Activist, Educator

And more!
