Nozhem Theatre: First Peoples Performance Space
The Colleges of Trent University welcome you to a public talk with 2023 Ashley Fellow Chúk Odenigbo. Every registrant will receive a Zoom link in the days before the lecture.
Participants will be guided through a thought-provoking reflection on how we, as a society, imagine utopia - who sets that definition, and who is leading us there - with insight into how our society might re-imagine a utopia that is truly inclusive of all.

About the Ashley Fellowship
The Ashley Fellowship is funded by a bequest from the late Professor C.A. Ashley, longtime friend of Trent University and an enthusiastic proponent of the role which the informal contacts of College life can play in the academic pursuits of the University.
