Spur 2014: Signal vs. Noise

We live in a world in which information is everywhere but facts are unclear, in which opinions are rampant but context is missing. How do we filter the din around us and focus on the trends and patterns that will reveal what is truly at issue? And once we have, how do we respond to those signals? These are the questions we’ll examine as part of the Spur Festival’s 2014 theme: Signal vs. Noise. Join fellow citizens and great thinkers at Spur 2014 for some serious fun and add your voice to the discussion.


Spur Vancouver is a co-presentation with SFU Woodward’s.
