The Walrus Talks format features 80 minutes of lively, thought-provoking ideas on topics related to a single theme.

The event will feature a unique line-up of spiritual, religious, community, and cultural thinkers; Nicole Brooks, creator, filmmaker, performer, playwright and teacher; Natalie Bull, Executive Director, National Trust for Canada; Lewis Cardinal, Cardinal Strategic Communications, specialist in Indigenous education; Timothy Caulfield, author specializing in ethical, legal, and health issues; Joan Garson, President, Holy Blossom Temple; Michael Ingham, retired Anglican bishop and theologian and Gretta Vosper, Minister, The United Church of Canada.

Admission to the local live-streaming event is free.

A potluck dinner for women only will follow the event.
