    Ideas become powerful when they are shared with others. This is a simple and somewhat obvious statement, yet understanding why it is true is key to realizing the value of offline idea-sharing spaces and places like #hatch (http://hatchtoronto.tumblr.com/). Andrea Hamilton will engage the group in hatching a few ideas to demonstrate the importance of connecting with people in your community to turn ideas into action and change the world. Andrea works at Ontario’s largest innovation centre, MaRSDD, and is a passionate advocate of city building and cross-sectoral collaboration. She recently co-founded #hatch, an offline ideas forum for big thinkers in Toronto that unites these two passions through casual, inspiring events. Since Andrea started at MaRS she has been lucky to work in a variety of program areas, learning from industry experts and entrepreneurs alike about emerging industries like ICT, Social Innovation, and Cleantech. Andrea is now brokering partnerships for an exciting project that connects innovation organizations and actors to build a picture of the startup and innovation landscape in Ontario. Andrea Recommends: * I just read the Sisters Brothers by Patrick deWitt – loved it. The characters were fabulous – hilarious, sad and hopeful. * Corn Nuts. A delicious snack food: Salty, BBQ flavour, easy to carry around, and they have fabulous crunch.

          To reflect on the enduring influence of Marshall McLuhan and the relevance of his theories, Canadian artists Lewis Kaye and David Rokeby were commissioned to create site-specific works at the McLuhan Program in Culture and Technology (MPCT) for the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival in May 2010. As the framework of the installation they drew from Marshall McLuhan’s book Through the Vanishing Point: Space in Poetry and Painting (coauthored by Harley Parker), 1968, which explores the way electronic media fragments the homogenous experience of space. From 1963 until his death in 1980, McLuhan conducted his groundbreaking research on the nature of communication, media and technology at the MPCT, which is in the building commonly known as the Coach House. Presenting two separate but complementary works in the exhibition Through the Vanishing Point, Kaye and Rokeby aurally and visually reconstruct McLuhan’s presence. Working with McLuhan’s ideas about acoustic and visual space, the artists recreate the atmosphere of his legendary Monday night seminars. Through the Vanishing Point has been specially adapted by Kaye and Rokeby for the space at MaRS, launching on June 6th for Net Change Week and McLuhan100.
