David Usher - The Power of Human Creativity

Thursday, March 10, 2022
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Faculty of Arts and Humanities invites you to the annual Robert and Patricia Duncanson Lecture.

This year, join us for a special virtual event, featuring Juno-Award winning creativity expert, David Usher as he shares “The Power of Human Creativity in the Age of Artificial Intelligence.”

Drawing from his unique experiences --- as the lead singer of Moist; a multi-platinum, four-time Juno-award winning musician; a bestselling author, and as the founder of the artificial intelligence creative studio Reimagine AI --- David Usher reveals why now, more than ever, creativity and innovation are the only way forward.

The artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics revolution is changing everything about the way we live and work. In this new paradigm, creative thinking is quickly becoming an essential skill in the coming revolution. Using live music, video, improvisation, technology, and humour, David Usher shows audiences why creativity is absolutely the superpower we need for this transformative new world, and how to cultivate it. The ability to understand and access a creative mindset will be what distinguishes both individuals and companies from everyone else. Now is the time to invest in creative thinking, and Usher will show Western alumni how.

A Zoom link will be emailed to you after registration. The event will begin promptly at 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
