Need a study break? The Ryersonian brings you a roundup of campus events this week.
For the politically charged:
The second annual Jack Layton lecture will feature speaker, advocate and political icon Ed Broadbent as he discusses the philosophical and historical successes of social democracy. If you’re in the mood for social change, head over to the free lecture after class this Tuesday.
For the aspiring musician:
Musicans@Ryerson are hosting a free guitar practice workshop this evening, so run home and grab your strings if you’re feeling a little rusty on those chord progressions. All levels are welcome.
For the art enthusiast:
This is the last week to catch Ryerson student Leila Fatemi’s exhibition ‘The Wandering Veil’, an artistic rendering of Fatemi’s personal experiences as a Muslim woman. The exhibition is at the I.M.A Gallery and closes on Saturday, so if you haven’t seen it, now is your last chance.
For the globetrotter:
Have you got the travel bug? Then don’t miss the Alternative Spring Break info session. ASB is a student group on campus that plans international volunteer experiences for students over spring break. Head on over Tuesday evening to find out what exciting adventures they are organizing this school year.
For the social media addict:
The Digital Media Zone is hosting a panel discussion on social media and higher education to celebrate Social Media Week. If you’re a social media junkie, listen in for ideas and new projects. Join them Wednesday afternoon or stream the event live on your computer or mobile device.
For the curious and hungry:
Soup and Substance is hosting a lunchtime panel discussion this Wednesday. Grab a bowl of soup and listen to a discussion on diversity, inclusion and equality. This season’s four-part series is moderated by Ryerson’s Denise O’Neil Green.
