Sterling Prize in Support of Controversy

September 28, 2015

The Nora and Ted Sterling Prize in Support of Controversy was established in 1993 to honour and encourage work that provokes and/or contributes to the understanding of controversy.

Join Stephen Collis and Lynne Quarmby at the 2015 Award Ceremony and Lecture: "When Democrazy Becomes Controversial: Climate Chamge and the Corporate State." 

"Our democratic system is vulnerable and has been slowly dismantled by those in power, most egregiously by the Harper Conservatives. Citizens today must wrestle with the contradiction of participating in a broken system - voting,  supporting parties and candidates, participating in public debate, even running for office — at the same time, recognizing that the most pressing issues we face (such as climate change, the geographical displacement of populations, and Indigenous rights and land claims), require us to take direct action outside of the electoral and representative apparatus of governance."

Date: Tuesday, October 13, 2015

Time: 7:00pm - 8:30pm

Location: Morris J Wosk Centre for Dialogue, 580 West Hastings St, Vancouver (enter from Seymour Street courtyard)
