Event description

Description

In conversation with local content creators and cultural producers, the Koffler Centre for the Arts and the Regent Park Film Festival invite Wesley Morris to share insights about his trajectory as a journalist, film critic, and podcaster for a student audience. From discussing the writer's craft and his approach to cultural commentary to what one gains and loses by becoming a public figure, this educational talk will be oriented towards individuals embarking upon careers in journalism, media, and the arts. Time permitting, local panelists will be invited to share their respective works before Morris and the audience to add more texture and context to the conversation. The discussion will be followed by a Q&A.

Wesley Morris is critic-at-large at The New York Times and a staff writer at The New York Times Magazine,
where he writes about popular culture and hosts the podcast Still Processing with Jenna Wortham. Known for his
“inexhaustible enthusiasm for and command of contemporary culture,” Morris bring “a fan’s heart and a critic’s
mind to everything from pop stars to film directors.” (The New York Times)

Presented by the Koffler Centre of the Arts in partnership with the Regent Park Film Festival and creative producer, Kehinde Bah.
