Our participatory events seek to reinvent the idea of the ‘university’ by creating spaces for lifelong learning, critical thinking and community engagement in local neighbourhoods.
University of the Streets Café
University of the Streets Café is a program of the Office of Community Engagement at Concordia University. It organizes bilingual, public conversations in cafés and community spaces across Montreal.
Fall 2018: Just Cities
We strive to hold all of our public conversations in venues that are accessible to persons with limited mobility. Contact us to find out more about the accessibility details or for any accessibility-related questions and/or needs.
Since its inception in 2003, University of the Streets Café has hosted over 500 public conversations! As a community-drive program, the topics we explore grow, change and occasionally reappear depending on what’s happening in the world and the interests of our participants.
