A photographer, a judge, and a biologist walk into a room… No this isn’t the beginning of a bad joke. It’s the beginning of a great set of Treehouse Talks.
Do you want to know how building a whale is similar to interpreting the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms? Are you curious to find out why pictures and legal text have more in common than you think? Come to find out these answers at MaRS on April 1st, 2011, at 6:20pm. We have 3 great Treehouse Talks for you, and we’ll try to find out what they have in common:
- Dr. Monika Havelka, an evolutionary biologist and one of Ontario’s best lecturers, will help the audience understand how to create a whale from a four-legged mammal.
- Justice Robert Sharpe, a judge of the Court of Appeal for Ontario, will run a debate to find out whether women really were persons according to the Constitution of Canada in the 1920s.
- John Beebe, a photographer, will lead a highly active presentation to challenge audience members to see and consider how we understand ourselves and others as complex people.
We’re excited. We hope you are too. See you there!
The conversations will continue after the show (8pm) at Mercatto next door.
Welcome to the Treehouse!
