  • 10:00 AM - 10:00 PM Barry Ace: Coalesce, Mixed Media Installation (Opening)

    Join us to celebrate the final exhibition of the season.

    Coalesce presents a fusion of distinct Anishinaabeg aesthetics of the Great Lakes’ region with the refuse from Western society’s technological and digital age. This entanglement of materials intentionally shifts the object’s materiality and its accepted paradigm within the physical world. Through this integration and juxtaposition of recognizable Anishinaabeg materials used in Anishinaabeg material culture (e.g. glass beads, porcupine quills), with contemporary electronic materials (e.g. capacitors and resistors), the exhibition will challenge viewers to reject and re-examine notions of cultural status.

    10:00 AM - 11:00 AM Wellness Workshop: Social Media and Mental Health
    In this workshop, we will discuss how social media can impact mental health, ways to set boundaries on social media use, and healthier ways of thinking about the role of social media in our lives. Workshops are free for all registered students, and registration is not required. Find the Wellness Education Centre below the Student Wellness Centre and down the hall from Veritas Café.

  • 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM The Smart Silver Economy: Tech-Enabled Aging for Good

    Speaker: Dr. Josephine McMurray, Business Technology Management Program, Lazaridis School of Business and Economics

    Abstract: 

    In 2016, the number of older adults in Canada surpassed the number of children, due to lower fertility rates, increasing life expectancy and the baby boomers aging. The Silver Economy is a term that has been used to refer to economic activity associated with meeting the needs of seniors. In this lecture I will explore how technology might be used to help organizations and communities manage the impact of a growing number of older adults, but better still how they can thrive by encouraging innovation and entrepreneurship in the health and age-related technology sector.

    This event is part of the Laurier Milton Lecture Series, a partnership between the Town of Milton, Laurier and the Milton Public Library. Admission is free, and no registration is required.
