Future Readiness and Mysterious Packages

Ana addressing the Film and Philosophy classes

SOLE hosted not one, but two guest speakers today. Rachel’s Film and Video class and Perryne’s Philosophy class heard Ana Serrano, Chief Digital Officer at the Canadian Film Centre, talk about preparing for the future of technology and society. Whether it’s climate change, income inequality, or surveillance, today’s young adults face a radically different world than their parents and grandparents. Ana addressed how citizens, government, and companies can transform their thinking to adapt to these new challenges.

Shannon’s English and Rachel’s Photography classes got a visit from Tim Sullivan, co-founder of the Mysterious Package Company. Tim shared some of his work and passion for transmedia narratives, introducing students to a unique and powerful form of storytelling. We were all entertained and a bit creeped out by the finger in the test tube, but hey, ’tis the season!
