The 17 Stations is an experimental audio-visual experience that presents the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through music, commentary, photography, local stories and cutting-edge science.

The exhibition idea was initiated by Prof. Baron Tymas, Co-director of the Design, Arts, Culture and Community Cluster of the Next-Generation Cities Institute. Through dialogue with over thirty Concordia University creative colleagues, a unique concept was developed to launch a series of exhibitions that highlight sustainable practices across multiple locations. 

Join us for the launch of this first-of-its-kind experience followed by a roundtable discussion with members of the team at 4 p.m.

How can you participate? Join us in person for the exhibition or online for the discussion by registering for the Zoom meeting.
