We are happy to announce Professor Leila Sujir and graduate MA student Oslavi Linares will be participating in the upcoming IdeaLabs, February 8th from 7-9pm. This will take place at Concordia University (EV Building room 11.705).
Every IdeaLab is an experimental forum. Fine arts faculty, students and alumni experience flash insights, cultivate ideas and collaborate and co-create the future together. The first phase is an idea slam: faculty, students, and alumni micro-present illuminating projects, programs and potent ideas at play in our faculty. The second phase is unscripted. Presenters and participants discuss, connect and imagine. Our Urban Curator, Shauna Janssen moderates. IdeaLabs act out micro and macro explorations of what we do as a Faculty and seek out where art, design, performance, pre-professional and scholarly activity in the cultural sphere might go in the future. We host several IdeaLabs throughout the academic year.
IdeaLabs are open to the whole Concordia community and to all friends-of-Fine-Arts in the public realm. First come, first seated. IdeaLab is presented by the Office of the Dean of Fine Arts.
