Rethinking the Global Village in an Era of Cities and Soft Power

Gail Lord and several of Toronto’s leading figures attended the Town Hall Meeting on October 16 as part of the international conference “The Toronto School: Then, Now, Next” (October 13-16, 2016). These leaders and the audience came together to explore the influences of soft power in civic discourse, cultural change, and collective intelligence. ​

The Toronto School: Then | Now | Next international conference assembles a unique group of Canadian and international interdisciplinary experts on media, communication and culture — including researchers from humanities and social sciences, artists and leading public thinkers.
