What is research & creation?

The Faculty of Fine Arts is a dynamic environment for research and creation. We play a central role in developing Research-Creation as a practice-based research trend in Canada, bridging interpretive disciplines with creative ones.

Our approach goes beyond mere description, engaging in a flourishing landscape of research, creative practice, and scholarly inquiry. 

Students benefit from immersive experiences within our internationally renowned research centers, labs, and studios, gaining access to exceptional facilities for research and production. Through interdisciplinary research collaborations and partnerships, Concordians connect with a diverse network of artists, scholars, groups, associations, venues, platforms, and teams around Montreal, across Canada, and internationally.

Our commitment to research and creation fuels innovation and propels artistic excellence. Join us in exploring new frontiers and unlocking the transformative power of creativity and knowledge.
