Hubbub Goes Virtual

In these strange and uncertain times, how can we keep experiential learning opportunities alive and thriving? When it comes to Hubbub, the end-of-term project showcase that usually happens at North Vancouver City Hall, the CityStudio North Vancouver team has decided to go virtual. Mark your calendars for HUBBUB #2 and RSVP here!

What will our virtual Hubbub look like?
Our biggest priority is to celebrate the hard work of CityStudio students while acknowledging that shifting timetables and priorities may lead to a different form of engagement. For this reason, the Hubbub agenda is highly flexible, allowing attendees to tune in and contribute when they are able.

  • Webinar launch: we will share an overview of this term’s CityStudio successes and we will hear pitches by eight student teams right at the start of the session.
  • Interactive session: The pitches will be followed by longer moderated Q&A sessions – tune in for your topics of interest to send your questions and let the students know what you think!
  • Real-time voting: participants can vote in real time for their favourite projects!
  • Connecting people: While we are losing the “organic” networking and relationship building aspect of an in-person Hubbub, we invite you to contact our Project Lead, Adele (adeletherias@capilanou.ca), if you would like to be introduced to any of the presenters to follow up on their ideas.
  • “Door” prizes: to thank you for your support and participation, we will be drawing names among the participant list – you could win gift certificates that support local businesses!
