The Joint Graduate Program in Communication and Culture is proud to announce the 10th Annual Intersections/Cross-Sections Research Symposium and Art Exhibition: Politics of Play.
This one-day symposium will feature a series of structured and semi-structured playful activities, encouraging everyone to Think, Talk, and Play.
The aim of the symposium is to create a playful space for graduate scholars to engage in meaningful, interdisciplinary dialogue on the theme of Politics of Play. This one-day event will feature: panel discussions; all-day play stations; games; and an art exhibition to facilitate play and playful discussion.
The panel discussions will take place on the 3rd floor of Bento Miso, a collaborative workspace in Toronto’s Queen West district. The connected, 1st floor gallery will provide a playful and dynamic space to facilitate dialogue and play between panelists and attendees. It will feature all-day play stations, board games, card tables and artworks. It will also provide the space for the Cross-Sections Art Exhibition, charity auction for Right to Play, and party in the evening.
Attendance for this event is free and open to the public. Attendees will include participants, graduate students and educators from Toronto and surrounding cities, as well as members of the Bento Miso community, many of whom are makers of political and thought-provoking games.
