About this Event

Ctrl+Shift | A Strategy Session Series

Smart Cities

October 17, 2019

7-8:30PM

Ctrl+Shift is a strategy session series that invites influential members of Toronto’s creative community to propose solutions to urgent challenges that affect the artists living in this city. Structured as a panel discussion, Ctrl+Shift seeks to facilitate productive conversations and actionable strategies that can elicit change in our shared creative landscape. This event is free and welcome to everyone.

This most recent edition of Ctrl+Shift will unpack the idea of the Smart City and Sidewalk Labs' proposal for Toronto's waterfront. Panelists will consider key issues related to data collection, surveillance and privacy, and the role artists have to play in shaping the city's increasingly digital urban environment.

This session will be moderated by Shawn Micallef, and will feature panellists Nasma Ahmed, Anthea Foyer, Leslie Shade, and Howard Tam.

Accessibility

We regret that at this time InterAccess does not have barrier-free access; we are currently working to improve the accessibility of all facilities. There are five steps up to our main entrance. Once inside all facilities are on the same level, and there is a single-user washroom inside the unit.
