Events Come to the Multi-Purpose Room of the Riddell Centre, off University Drive South, on November 17 and 18 (Thursday and Friday) to participate in creating a knowledge commons in Saskatchewan.

We are talking about:

  • challenging the privatization and commodification of knowledge
  • creating avenues for scientists, artists, Indigenous Peoples, farmers, journalists, students, teachers, librarians, health care workers, researchers, community activists, and citizens of all kinds to freely access and share humanity's knowledge


Thursday, November 17 @ 7:30pm

  • Brewster Kneen, Founder of the Forum on Privatization and the Public Domain, will deliver the keynote address in the Multi-Purpose Room, Riddell Centre
  • reception to follow

Friday, November 18 @ 9:00am (until 4:45pm)
