Ideas on Tap with Royah Khorsandi
“Social Media and the Power of Art, Yoga and Thinking Differently”
Tuesday Nov 27th
7pm on the Main Floor – FREE TO ALL
Social Media has become ingrained in our global culture and daily lives. Whether we utilize it or not, or to what extent, doesn’t matter. In fact we are all affected by it in some way or another. It can be a great way to connect, share and spread information; however, these same qualities that make it great are also what can make it troublesome. How people harness and utilize it is what matters. We’re only just beginning to realize the impact and influence it can have on individuals, communities and societies as a whole. Despite all this, though we can’t control exactly how our societies evolve, we can play a part in how we contribute to this change and how we let it affect us. Through learning to: think differently, make time for creativity and prioritize physical, mental and emotional health, we can build the resilience required to cope and thrive in a rapidly changing digital age.
Royah Khorsandi is a Queen’s University Alumna, visual artist and yoga instructor. Having attended college both before and during the rise in popularity of social media, she became interested in studying how it affects human behaviour. Through personal and professional experiences she’s realized the need for practices that create greater resilience and contentment, particularly those incorporating art, creativity and mindfulness. She currently lives in Kingston, Ontario with her husband and daughter.
