Hive Mind

Today, the web can bring people together, building online communities and mobilizing social movements, or create targets in a click, releasing a pack of online hounds. Spur welcomes a panel of pioneering women who have taken the power of game design and the potential of online communities to develop projects that challenge convention and provide fresh voices to the industry.

This event will include a performance by Spur Poet-in-Residence Chimwemwe Undi.

Spur is a national festival of politics, art and ideas and is a catalyst for change in Canada.

Through nationally relevant and locally nuanced discussions, presentations and performances, the festival seeks to spur its participants to action on issues affecting Canadians. Feisty, multi-partisan, forward-looking, and solution-driven, this national railway of ideas will provide Canada with vital new cultural infrastructure for the 21st century.

Founded in 2013, the festival has already grown from three to five Canadian cities, with plans for further expansion across the country. Produced by the Literary Review of Canada in partnership with Diaspora Dialogues, Spur prides itself on its community partnerships, cultural connections and a focus on accessibility and diversity.
