The Walrus travels to London & Winnipeg for public events


Having won more National Magazine Awards than any other publication since 2003, The Walrus knows a thing or two about successful audience engagement.
Next month the magazine is hosting two compelling events: “The Walrus Talks Creativity,” on Thursday March 12 at Western University in London, Ontario; and, perhaps dearer to its namesake’s ecosystem, “The Walrus Talks Arctic” at the Winnipeg Art Gallery on March 26.
The London event will feature poet Mustafa Ahmed, authors Emma Donoghue and Elaine Lui, actor Juggun Kazim, Blackberry’s lead designer Brian Paschke, the Toronto International Film Festival’s Cameron Bailey, musicians Saukrates and David Usher,  and Joel Faflak, director of the School for Advanced Studies in the Arts and Humanities, Western University.
Tickets to the event are $20 for general; $15 for students.
Two weeks later in Winnipeg, The Walrus will welcome Erin Freeland Ballantyne of Dechinta Centre for Research and Learning, artist and sculptor Ruben Komangapik, historian Whitney Lackenbauer, Michael Maltzan, architect of the WAG’s new Inuit Art Centre, explorer and author James RaffanLola Sheppard, Arctic Adaptations project lead, Tanya Tagaq, performer and Polaris Prize winner, and Sheila Watt-Cloutier, environmental and human rights advocate.
Tickets to the event are $20 for general; $15 for students.
