What makes a nation?

That’s the question that’s driving AGO Creative Minds at Massey Hall, taking place this Friday, April 21 at 8 pm. In video below, Metro Morning host and CBC Radio 1 personality Matt Galloway takes us through the social and political contexts that make Creative Minds: Art and Nationhood such a pertinent event.

Creative Minds will be live-streamed at and broadcast nationally on CBC Radio One. The event features an all-star lineup of panelists—architect Sir David Adjaye, actor and director Paul Gross, painter Christi Belcourt and novelist Junot Díaz—moderated by Galloway, and featuring an opening performance by rock duo Whitehorse. But act quickly to buy tickets if you want to be there in person—the inaugural Creative Minds, featuring artists like Buffy Sainte-Marie and Deepa Mehta, sold out.
