"Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning." - Gloria Steinem

On the cusp of 2020, more than a dozen science fiction creators will be germinating wild ideas at the Oakwood Village Library. Novelists, hardware hackers, game creators, and more will be doing workshops for apocalypse preppers, teaching lo-fi sci-fi podcasting, convening socials for sex workers, and generally inspiring those who believe in social change and a diverse future.

Every Thursday this Fall, 6pm at Oakwood Village Library - come rewrite the timeline with us! Free and all are welcome! Made possible by support from the Toronto Arts Council's Artists in Libraries Program. For more details - please visit the individual event listings.
