UPDATE: Horrific Ways to Save the World

UPDATE: The Black Museum has decided to withdraw participation from this event held at the Oakwood Village Library and Arts Centre, due to the problematic nature surrounding the Toronto Public Library’s controversial decision to host discriminatory speaker, Meghan Murphy. While we would love to support the presenter of this event and the Multiversity Collective’s speaking series, and we recognize that the TPL’s decision is not reflective of all of its workers’ mindsets, we oppose any action/speech/sentiment that may be harmful to members of The Black Museum community.

Looking for something spooky to do before you head out to that Halloween party on the night of nights?

The Black Museum co-presents this early evening talk alongside the Multiversity Collective, featuring sci-fi writer Peter Watts! Hosted by project facilitator, Jim Munroe.

About: On the holiday when we indulge our darker sides, novelist and former biologist Peter Watts will lay out a number of rational, scientifically sound, and truly nightmarish ways of making the world a better place. Watts’ previous talks have made the case for vampire domesticization for the benefit of pharmaceutical companies, so expect to be unsettled.

Made possible by support from the Toronto Arts Council’s Artists in Libraries Program.

Multiversity Collective weekly programs are part of the Sept-Dec 2019 Artists in the Library residency at Oakwood Village Library
