Promenade parlante: Episodes in a Changing City

 

Friday, November 29, 2019 - 14:30

Please join the creators of Promenade parlante: Episodes in a Changing City, for a special screening on Friday, November 29th at 2:30pm in Concordia University’s 4th Space (1400 Maisonneuve Blvd W, Montreal, Quebec H3G 1M8).

Our 22-minute film shares the creative journey of a small group of senior citizens as they enter into a one-year collaboration with Concordia professors, Dr Cynthia Hammond (Art History/Centre for Oral History & Digital Storytelling) and Dr Shauna Janssen (Theatre/Institute for Urban Futures), and Eric Craven, Coordinator of the Digital Literacy Project at the Atwater Library and Computer Centre. Their goal? To creatively foreground the living memories of older Montrealers and to show how, through digital tools and research-creation, you are never too old to become an artist. Join us for the screening and discussion about how older Montrealers have shaped our city. Promenade parlante was made possible through a Partnership Engage grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, a wonderful team of student assistants and facilitators, and Wendy Allen, Ramsay Blair, Penelope Cumas, Lilian Harper, and Wanda Potrykus.
