Arcade Fire front man Will Butler will return to his alma mater, Northwestern University in Chicago, to deliver a guest lecture about "blending his music career with social activism" at the Center for Civic Engagement.

“He’s a really unique and interesting individual because he’s taken a field like music that a lot of people don’t necessarily associate with social activism. He’s a really good example of how you can incorporate that mentality into whatever you do,” said Asha Toulmin, a Medill senior and former North by Northwestern staffer.

The lecture takes place at 7:00pm on November 2 in the McCormick Tribune Center Forum, with the promise of a potential perfomance. The lecture is part of a larger effort to show students how they can blend their chosen field of study with civic engagement and promoting big ideas. In other words, don't just go out and get a job, get a job that actually promoted social ideas. That is, if the students can find jobs!
