10th LaFontaine-Baldwin Symposium: His Highness the Aga Khan
Featuring His Highness the Aga Khan, the 10th LaFontaine-Baldwin Symposium held October 15, 2010, was a huge success. The Aga Khan spoke about pluralism and diversity to a sold out audience at Koerner Hall in the Royal Conservatory’s Telus Centre for Performance and Learning. John Ralston Saul then took the stage and discussed citizenship and pluralism in Canada. Telus streamed the event and it was shown in 60 Ismaili community centres across the country; approximately 20,000 people watched the lecture online.
On October 16, at the Leslie and Anna Dan Galleria in the Royal Conservatory’s Telus Centre for Performance and Learning, approximately 100 people participated in a roundtable discussion with John Ralston Saul and the Right Honourable Adrienne Clarkson to further discuss the themes and topics from the night before.
