Role: Co-curator and co-producer

“Words & [ ] — a Durational Conference of Art & Thought” was a 56-hour (French/English bilingual) presented by The School of Making Thinking, that took place at The Darling Foundry in Montreal, May 6 – 8 2016. It featured round-the-clock live programming of over 100 interdisciplinary performative presentations. Presentations covered a wide range of topics related to how words, not-words and quasi-words rub up with and against the intuitive, the sensuous and the embodied. As this theme cuts across art and thought, so too did the conference feature a diverse array of platforms that push-up against the word-centric methodologies of traditional conferences.”
