Changing Media Landscapes in Canada and Asia
Thursday, 29 August 2013 from 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM (EDT)
Our media consumption is changing. What we watch on the big screen and in our homes is different from what it was a decade ago and the internet has changed how we choose to consume. As Asian economies remain a major source of global growth, their importance as media markets and as producers of globally-consumed media content expands in parallel. What do these changes mean for Canadian media and Canadian consumers? Are we taking advantage of growing global opportunities, particularly in Asia? What are the effects of censorship in Asia, especially China? Find out from Hugh Stephens, Executive-in-Residence at the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada and former Senior Vice President of Public Policy (Asia Pacific) at Time Warner.
This event is part of the APF Canada Talks at East Gallery series and takes place during an exhibition entitled "Southeast Asia - Figuratively Speaking" which features work by 11 leading artists from Vietnam, Cambodia and Burma.
