Few people understand the importance of the arts and cultural sector better than Cameron Bailey (BA'87, LLD'18). The CEO of one of the world’s biggest and most important film festivals, he is responsible for leading the Toronto International Film Festival’s (TIFF) vision, as well as maintaining relationships with the Canadian and international film industries.

The Faculty of Arts & Humanities is honoured to host Cameron as part of the 2023 Robert and Patricia Duncanson Lecture, held on Western Day. This hybrid event can be attended in person at Conron Hall or online via Zoom.
During the lecture, Cameron will use his unique perspective to tie the importance of humanities scholarship and cultural engagement to a meaningful search for ways to exert a positive influence. Following Cameron's lecture, a reception will be held in the rooms adjoining Conron Hall.
