Hot Ticket: Occupy Words in Edgewise, December 14

For its 21st installment, Words in Edgewise, the informal, performance-based lecture event, will feature talks and discussions about the Occupy movement. Iain McCurdy will offer up a first-hand account of the eviction of Occupy Wall Street in NYC. Justin Brake, an occupant in the Newfoundland movement, will talk about how changing day-to-day activities can help to create the empathy lacking in our society today. A lively and in-depth discussion will follow. The pay-what-you-can event runs at 8pm at Eastern Edge Gallery at 72 Harbour Drive.
