The Walrus National Gallery Debate
Wednesday May 2, 2012 at 7pm
Dr. Stephen Borys, WAG Executive Director, is one of four Canadian arts leaders participating in the 4th Annual Walrus Debate at the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa on Wednesday, May 2, 2012. Moderated by Carol Off, CBC radio host for As it Happens, the topic of the debate is “ART In Daily Life: Essential or Irrelevant? Who decides? Who pays? Who cares?” For the debate, Dr. Borys will team up with the Globe and Mail’s Kate Taylor to square off against art critic Sarah Milroy and Marc Mayer, Director and CEO of the National Gallery of Canada.
The Walrus magazine was established in September of 2003, and has quickly become known for its witty commentary on Canada and its place in the world. The proceeds from the event support writers and artists through the work of The Walrus Foundation.
