Toronto Events | Jen Dodd

By: Jen Dodd  09-12-2011

Here’s the info:

Wednesday November 3, 6:30pm – 8:00pm
Centre for Social Innovation, Room 120 (215 Spadina Ave)

How do people discover and rediscover their calling in life? November’s interviewee, Dina Graser, is someone who has redefined herself again and again: she has been a lawyer, community activist, political campaigner and arts producer. These days she’s in charge of community relations for Metrolinx, the GTA transit agency. The interview will explore what it means to make Toronto a better place, how to create new institutions and make them work, and what it means to follow your own path in life.

Location instructions: on arriving at 215 Spadina, go through the Dark Horse cafe to the lobby, go up the stairs to the left of the elevator, and room 120 is through the glass doors straight ahead.



Coming on Wednesday December 1: Interview with Jim Handman, executive producer of CBC’s Quirks & Quarks

None of that sounds very exciting compared to our core mission (bringing artists and scientists together to do cool stuff!) but without good tools for these tasks we’re spending a lot of time working around inefficient systems and, what’s worse, we lose opportunities to build on our hard work.

3 Rules | Jen Dodd

It helps to have the cash to pay experienced A/V people, but you can ensure things go smoothly by communicating with presenters well in advance about their tech requirements, arranging enough time for a thorough tech check before the audience arrives, setting up a simple back-up system, etc.


Management | Jen Dodd

The question of how to get sponsorship for science-related BarCamps, and events in general, is something I’ve had some experience doing, so I thought I would write up my best understanding to date – my personal, evolving checklist – to share. Small sponsorship is any amount that an individual from a company can easily pledge without a detailed justification or getting approval from higher up – usually no more than hundreds of dollars.
