What is Fake News? Navigating today's news and information
When: Thursday, Feb. 1 at 5:30 p.m.
Where: The Parliament Arts Organization, 116 E. King St. York
Piggybacking off our first show of 2018 "Eyes on the World" - art inspired by current events and social issues, The Parliament is teaming up with the York Daily Record/Sunday News to bring you a session on #FAKENEWS.
What is it? How can you avoid it? How can you identify what is fact and what isn't in this world of constant news and updates?
Scott Fisher of the York Daily Record will join us to talk about how to navigate the fast-paced flow of information in our 24-hour news cycle that can be weighed down by false information and uncorroborated "facts."
In 2018, The Parliament plans on hosting a workshop or session in conjunction with the theme of each gallery exhibit.
