Public art event: "Promenade parlante: Episodes in a Changing Neighbourhood"
Drs Cynthia Hammond (Art History) and Shauna Janssen (Theatre) are pleased to announce the second "Promenade parlante": an episodic, performative walk in and about Shaughnessy Village, where Concordia University is situated. Working with a group of seniors and Eric Craven of the Atwater Library's Digital Literacy and Community Outreach programs, Hammond and Janssen will present this 2-hour event (rain or shine) that employs arts-based methods as a means to share the urban knowledge of older Montrealers. Collectively, the walk will tell a series of little-known stories about this neighbourhood, its past history, current struggles, and personal significance. The event will begin and end at Atwater Library, and will be followed by refreshments. Free and open to all. This event is made possible through the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
