Dear Prof. Treviranus,

Next week The Glenn Gould Foundation Foundation will be bringing Apple University’s Prof. Joshua Cohen to Toronto on  Sept. 25 and 26 to give two presentations from his Best Things curriculum at A.U.:

Gould’s Variations and the Human Qualities that Foster Remarkable Creativity - Sept. 25, 6:30 p.m. Al Green Theatre/Miles Nidal JCC
Central Park - A Design for Democracy - Sept. 26, 6:30 p.m. Isabel Bader Theatre

Cohen is an inspiring speaker who brings the moral / philosophical implicaitons of design and technology in the arts to life.

I was hoping you might be able to help us spread the word about these events to your faculty colleagues and the students. The Gould presentation in particular, provides a broader vision of the role of the artist and designer in society, the confrontation with the challenges and opportunities of technology and the ethical considerations that inform both - it’s the kind of insight that can really lend a sense of mission to young practitioners preparing for their careers.

This is a rare opportunity to experience these presentations, prepared exclusively for Apple’s senior management, and rarely heard outside the company.

For details, and to purchase tickets, anybody interested can go to:


(we’ve made it very affordable, and student discounts are available).

Many thanks for any help you can provide, and I do hope to see you there too,
