Broaden your mind with the Scholars' Hub @ Home Speaker Series

Do you enjoy hearing about the latest thought-provoking research? The Scholars’ Hub @ Home speaker series features discussions on a broad range of topics, with engaging lectures from some of York’s best minds. The Scholars’ Hub events are done in partnership with Vaughan Public Libraries, Markham Public Library, and Aurora Public Library. The Scholars' Hub @ Home series is brought to you by York Alumni Engagement. We invite students, alumni and all members of the community to join us. All sessions take place at 12pm ET.

Dr. Sarah Bay-Cheng, Dean, Faulty of Arts, Media, Performance & Design

In March 2020, live events across Canada and around the world stopped almost overnight. In the wake of COVID-19, the performing arts and their audiences moved online. It’s been a year, so what happened and what comes next?

This talk looks at the effect of the pandemic on the performing arts in Canada and internationally, how we adapted, and speculations on the future of performance in a post-pandemic world.
