#CdnCult Times; Volume 2, Edition 6


In my prompt to the Geographic Correspondents, I unintentionally included the language how does the “world outside world” impact your work? It has a ring to it though.

This Canadian world, despite spanning thousands of kilometers, has a remote consistency to it. Deceivingly immune from world events, it is possible to be an artist here who delves not too seriously into that kind of thing.

This edition contains  articles that challenge that notion: Geographic Correspondents get into everything from Netflix to the Olympics, Neworld AD Marcus Youssef reflects on his Theatre Centre-sponsored trip to Egypt, and Mathieu Murphy-Perron writes from Thailand on his mobile phone.

Where are we going, with whom, and how are we connected to all of the people on this earth?
