Presented by The Eramosa Institute

The 2015 Guelph Lecture: On Being Canadian will serve as the centerpiece to a new three-day event. Spur Guelph Festival offers lectures, conversations, musical performances, literary readings, film screenings, and city walks that will consider how we can imagine new possibilities for Canadians, and the world beyond the status quo.

For the Guelph Lecture, Jaron Lanier, a pioneer of virtual reality, will speak about new horizons for the Internet age. Lee Maracle will read the latest writing that she conjured while in residence at a nature reserve. The Penderecki String Quartet accompanied by DJ Cyclist and composer, Peter Hatch, will imagine new sound possibilities.
