How AI is impacting Canadian society, arts, and culture

Artificial intelligence (AI) is set to transform the Canadian art world. The Walrus Talks Cultural Futures brings together seven cultural leaders to explore the influence of AI on Canada’s artistic scene.

How can Canadian artists and cultural institutions use AI to push boundaries and redefine what is possible? What are the ethical considerations surrounding the convergence of AI and culture? How will AI impact cultural education, artistic promotion, distribution, and monetization?

Join us, in Ottawa or online, as we explore the exciting changes and challenges that AI brings to art and culture.
