A reception will follow the event.

Panelists:

Stuart Thompson is the graphics director for The New York Times Opinion section, where he leads the department's first-ever visual journalism operation. While running the team, Stuart also writes, reports and visualizes arguments on topics ranging from privacy to politics.

Kara-Lis Coverdale: Heralded as “one of the most exciting young composers in North America” by The Guardian, Kara-Lis Coverdale’s dynamic work occupies new planes built upon a borderless understanding of electronic music, with roots in several interlocking musical systems and languages. She has built a steady international reputation as a highly dynamic and explorative artist, resistant to categorization and stasis.

Angela Misri is an award-winning journalist, author and educator. Her young-adult detective series, called The Portia Adams Adventures, is set in the 1930s, and her first middle-grade novel is called Pickles vs the Zombies and will be published by Cormorant books in September, 2019. Misri has worked as a digital journalist for almost 20 years, first  at the CBC and now at The Walrus.

Ryan Louis is a Toronto based visual artist who creates contemporary mixed-media pieces and photographs. He is interested in creating open-ended stories and produces imagery that is playful in nature. His work has been shown in the CONTACT Photography Festival, The Gladstone Hotel, in the Artist Project’s emerging artist exhibition, OCADU, O’Born Contemporary, in House&Home Magazine, and on Collective Arts Brewing labels. Ryan currently works as a production manager at VICE Media.
