As part of International Digital Arts Biennial organised by Elektra (ACREQ)
A collaboration between articule and the Artifact Institute, this interdisciplinary event will explore perspectives on the consumption, use, disposal, repair, re-use and obsolescence of electronic equipment. The forum will consider how the Montreal community is responding to the ever-increasing volume of electronic equipment that is perceived as obsolete, valueless or disposable, and engage the wider contexts of these issues.
The forum will bring together presenters from community organizations, activist milieus, the art world, universities, small businesses and the general public in a single space of encounter. Presentations by invited panelists will be accompanied by a facilitated public discussion, workshops and a community fair.
All events are free.
The forum is bilingual, translation to English and French will be provided.
