Biography

Noémie Fortin is a second-year student in the MA program in Art History at Concordia University. She lives in the Eastern Townships, originally coming from Lac-Mégantic and currently established in Sherbrooke.

Fortin completed a BA (double honours in art history and fine arts) at Bishop’s University in 2016 and is now back in school after a 1-year maternity leave. Her research interests mainly lie in the relations between artists, territories, communities and institutions. Noémie’s master thesis explores the different ways in which art and culture contribute to shaping the natural and built environment, especially in situations where they instill resilience to people living in precarious territories.
