Should I Delete My Facebook? - Hanoi Debates @ Sidewalk Hanoi

Humans like to paint the world in black and white. It's often difficult for us to recognize that something can be a powerful tool and simultaneously an engine of chaos. This is certainly the case for social media.

This week the Hanoi Philosophy Forum will host two evenings of discussions, talks, games, music and art exploring the positives and negatives of social media - including connection, addiction, privacy, the echo chamber, and more.

+ A series of lectures and small-group discussions led by Jon Dallas
+ Special music created specifically for tonight's event by Giorgia-May
+ Artwork created for the Forum by Myrthe M Nijs, Olga Raski, Lara Hardie Stewart, Hà Lgr and Lara Ross-Mcglynn, Dino Carobene
+ Haiku and/or Drawing Contest led by Truitt Urbanic and Dakota Lambert
+ Special music written and performed for the Forum by Tabitha Perez and Ian Campbell of TOVA
