The University of Waterloo's Stratford School of Interaction Design and Business will be hosting CBC IDEAS: Visionaries in Conversation on November 16. Billed as "an opportunity to explore how we reshape the future of our tech-driven world," the event will feature speakers Cory Doctorow and Vass Bednar.
"Immerse yourself in an insightful discussion moderated by CBC IDEAS host Nahlah Ayed, accompanied by renowned science fiction writer and tech visionary, Cory Doctorow. Joining this compelling lineup is tech policy entrepreneur and incisive analyst, Vass Bednar. Together, they will embark on a thought-provoking journey, delving into the pivotal interplay between imagination, public policy, and advocacy," says a note about the event. "Discover how these driving forces empower us to seize control of our technology, instead of ceding power to formidable external influences. This isn't just a conversation; it's an opportunity to explore how we reshape the future of our tech-driven world -- an exhilarating exploration of possibilities!"
This event, co-presented with CBC IDEAS and the University of Waterloo Stratford School of Interaction Design and Business, is part of the larger Provocation Ideas Festival.
The event will be held Thursday, November 16, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Stratford School on St. Patrick Street. The event is free, but registration is required. Register for the event via Eventbrite.
