Research-Creation from a Black Perspective

 

Monday, February 17, 2020 - 18:00 to 20:00

Bilingual Event | Évènement bilingue

* Children are welcome | Les enfants sont les bienvenus

with Annick MF

 

In this workshop, participants will have a chance to explore the rapidly growing methodology of Research-Creation. We will discuss the common styles of Research-Creation, how they are practiced across different fields, how they can differ inside and outside of the university, and what unique opportunities this methodology brings to the table. Participants will have a chance to work in small groups to experiment with Research-Creation techniques and strategies.

This workshop is grounded in a Black perspective, where Annick centers the opportunities, considerations, and challenges that she has noted in her Research-Creation practice as a Black woman/mother who works with and for Black communities.  

Annick MF is a multidisciplinary maker and community organizer born and based out of Tio’tia:ke (Montreal). She is the founding coordinator for the Black Perspectives Initiative at Concordia University and a long-standing COHDS affiliate. In her most recent degree, she explored ways of unpacking the complex racial and lingual dynamics of Montreal with youth, through a research-creation project called Understanding Blackness in Montreal: A Toolkit for Engaging Youth in Critical Dialogue Around Race, which led to the intergenerational Mapping Blackness in Montreal project she facilitates. As this project grows she hopes to take it on tour across Canada and foster connections between Black Canadian communities.
