Chico Speaks: A Public Discussion Series
“Fakebook: Reliability and Truth in the Era of Fake News"
Tuesday | 18 April 2017 | 7 p.m. (doors open at 6:30)
Alternative Facts and Fake News are this season’s buzzwords. What happens to objectivity, reliability, and notions of the truth when readers gather information from social media and news feeds tailored to their political views? How can we counteract or complicate news bubbles? What is the news media’s role and how is it changing? What can history teach us? What do we teach our children?
Join local community arts group Slow Theatre as we host the first installment of a new public discussion series, Chico Speaks. This event will build on the tremendous success of our February event, The People’s State of the Union, which drew 200+ audience members.
