2017/03/09: National Gallery Talk: Creativity — and Protest

2017-03-09-national-gallery-talk-creativity-and-protest



On March 9, 2017, I was invited to speak at the National Gallery of Canada on creativity. There were protests at the Gallery, a letter-writing campaign, petitions, disparaging commentary in local media outlets, and pressure placed on the National Gallery Staff to cancel the event — which they did not.

See for example: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/jordan-peterson-national-gallery-canada-1.4005615

This video contains footage from the protest, and then a three-minute segment of the discussion between Marc Meyer, Director of the Gallery, and myself. We spoke before an enthusiastic crowd of about 700 for an hour. About 300 people were turned away for lack of space.

The rest of the discussion is at the National Gallery of Canada YouTube site here: http://bit.ly/2oTKCpg

Thanks to Marc his staff (who I won’t name here) for making this happen.
