David Gauntlett’s Making is Connecting struck a chord with crafters, YouTubers, makers, music producers, artists and coders alike. The book made a solid case for the social value of creativity and the power of connecting. But in 2018—as he launches the Second Edition—we are increasingly aware that digital technologies have brought anxious fragmentation rather than creative harmony. Can we still see hope for connected creativity today?

In January 2018, Gauntlett joined Ryerson University’s Faculty of Communication and Design as Professor of Creative Innovation and Leadership. He taught previously at University of Leeds, Bournemouth University and University of Westminster, all in the UK. He is an internationally known author, scholar and educator, linking social analysis of the value of creative engagement, including the role of everyday creativity, with work connecting media and the creative industries. This talk will be followed by a book signing.
