  Impending McLuhan Festival (Toronto)  
Posted 2004-09-09 by Tony Walsh
Although there's currently no mention of such a festival on the McLuhan Program blog, word on the street is that Toronto will be hosting the "McLuhan International Festival of the Future" from October 8 to 17, 2004. Taking place at various venues across the city, the fest aims to explore new media in the city. Official PR snippet follows:

"The McLuhan International Festival of the Future will establishing a new-style festival that looks at our future through Marshall McLuhan's unprecedented genius. More specifically, the McLuhan Festival will create 10 days every year in which commerce, culture and community come together to create a "thinking city" and where all three integrate to create
forward-thinking projects. The McLuhan Festival will demonstrate the undeniable and invaluable growth of Canadian originality and innovation from the theoretical to the practical in media, science, technology and the arts. From gadgets and gizmos, the future of urban planning to public art and nanoscience. It will be the first public festival of the Future."
