Concordia University is developing a digital strategy. This is just one of the transformational projects being under undertaken in 2017-18 as part of the Strategic Directions initiative to position Concordia as a next-generation university.

To engage faculty, staff and students in this process, we are bringing a diverse group of thought-leaders to the university as part of the Concordia President’s Speaker Series on Digital Futures. They will share their experience and insights to spark conversations and reflections as we work together to develop a shared vision for Concordia's digital future.

Award winning filmmaker and visual artist Félix Lajeunesse will share an overview of what led to the creation of Félix & Paul Studios. He will share some stories about some of their current and upcoming projects while sharing how these will be done with technological advancements.
