Outside the Square: Is This Working? How to be connected

22 June @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$15 - $25

Social media has also proven to be an effective tool for organising rapid response activist movements: it can connect and unite us to create meaningful social change.

But being constantly connected to each other and having easy access to mass information has its costs. Are we being dumbed down? Who makes or loses money when we expect access and information for free? How do we feel about constant surveillance by both corporate and our own personal social media platforms? Are we really informed? Are we really connected?
