February 6, 2010
11:00AM - 4:30PM

Invented by Portland novelist/publisher Matthew Stadler and curator Stephanie Snyder, Public Speakers is a collective of autonomous cells in five cities that commissions and presents new public lectures for a popular audience. Past events include Psychedelic Logging and Monkey Wreaks Havoc in Suburbia.


Eight times an unknown quantity brings together eight — or more — speakers presenting lectures for Vancouver’s first-ever Public Speakers event.
