You’ve probably heard these words one too many times in recent past: layoffs, recession, collapse, destruction and maybe even apocalypse. Unfortunately, these are commonly used terms among folks in the journalism industry lately. While we’re conscious of how serious and troubling the times have become, there’s a part of us that can’t help but take a jab at our own dire situations. That’s why the Ryerson Review of Journalism is hosting The Pink Slip Party, a fundraiser for our spring issue where you can drown your sorrows with some good beer, dancing, music and fantastic prizes. All proceeds go to supporting the upcoming spring issue of the Review.
On Thursday November 26 at 9 p.m., be sure to join us at Supermarket (268 Augusta Ave. in Kensington Market) for some much-needed fun. Advanced tickets can be purchased now for $8 at the Rogers Communications Centre (80 Gould St. in the Atrium). Tickets are $10 at the door. Despite our cheeky theme, we promise no talk of job cuts or money woes, just some good, recession-era times. We look forward to seeing you all.
