Fake News, Real Talk
Knowledge is power. In a digital age of fake news, alternative facts, media echo chambers, confirmation bias, and algorithm-fuelled virality, how can we as students navigate our way around our distorted media landscape? What does it mean now to be informed?
Fake News, Real Talk is an interactive, student-led exhibit showcasing how disinformation impacts us when it comes to everything from politics to pop culture, even down to our personal lives. Our event is driven with the purpose of illustrating how misinformation impacts the lens through which we perceive, experience, and act upon our world.
So, take a study break and come kick back with us! Gather your friends for a night of great food, even better company, and get ready to challenge your understanding of truth. Hang out with fellow students and join us for an amazing and informative night at the Misinformation Gallery. Drop by anytime between 7:00-9:00pm. Don’t miss out!
