Halifax – Nocturne, what a time! These oft empty streets were teeming with citizens and music and art OH MY! But now that the dust is settling and the sun is back up Max Haiven is asking us to ask ourselves whose interests events like Nocturne and Nuit Blanche serve.
This evening, at the Roberts St Social Centre, Haiven is going to be ruminating on the motives behind the “creative economy” and the capacity of this economy to benefit urban infrastructure and social programs. He is interested in the links between the new hype about creativity, gentrification, foreclosures and the crisis of capitalism. Are you?

WHEN: Sunday, October 17th – 6:30pm – 8:00pm
