VISIBLE is thrilled to begin their residency at Maison de l’innovation sociale, who invited the two women artists in their ‘Citizen Participation Studio’ part of MIS‘s Transitional Laboratory in the Young Project.
It is within the MIS’s studios in the Young Project that VISIBLE will be able to start the research-creation process of their upcoming performance piece on the Right to Housing entitled “The Address”. This piece, created by VISIBLE and co-produced with Amplifier will unfold at the intersection of performance, new media, ethnography and documentary processes.
Here’s a bit more information on the Young Project:
The Young Project brings together about 20 cultural and community organizations, artists and social entrepreneurs for a 22-month period in a vacant industrial building in Montréal’s Griffintown neighbourhood. Montréal has hundreds of vacant and underutilized buildings, many of them owned by the municipality. An initiative of the Future Cities urban innovation strategy, the Transitional Laboratory aims to match the owners of some of these buildings with community groups, including social innovators, artists and cultural associations for the purpose of reducing costs, bringing together visionaries in a collaborative and dynamic space, and allowing projects that are in their infancy to take off.
