Next Scholars’ Hub examines the art of co-creating through uncertainty

"ONE (NINE)" movie still

For the Nov. 3 edition of the Scholars’ Hub @ Home speaker series, filmmakers Lydia Zimmermann and Ingrid Veninger, an associate professor in York University’s School of the Arts, Media, Performance & Design, will host a discussion titled “Collaboration and the art of co-creating through uncertainty: ONE(NINE).”

Join an intimate discussion with the filmmakers as they share the process of making ONE(NINE), by nine filmmakers isolating in different parts of the world during the COVID-19 pandemic, about what it means to find connection in a time of isolation. On March 25, 2020, Veninger contacted Zimmermann to ask if she would be part of an international experiment. It had been 20 years since they spoke. Zimmermann said yes. This session will explore how and why we make things, when we have no idea what we are doing. 

Brought to you by York University’s Office of Alumni Engagement, the Scholars’ Hub @ Home speaker series features discussions on a broad range of topics, with engaging lectures from some of York’s best and brightest minds. Students, alumni and all members of the community are invited to attend. All sessions take place at noon via Zoom.
