The Elastic Spaces SSHRC Connection funded project, Thinking Allowed, brings together a network of artists, curators, scientists, students and community members coming with expertise from different branches of knowledge – artistic, scientific and Indigenous – to address urgent issues around social justice and the environment. Using both new and traditional practices, this group of interdisciplinary and intergenerational researchers work together towards delineating the intersections among the entangled problems of climate change, clear-cutting of old growth forests, human displacement, settler-colonialism and racism. 

Thinking Allowed is organizing a series of online + in-person conversation panel talks in Spring and Summer 2023 at Concordia University’s 4th Space, in collaboration with the Canadian Filmmaker Distribution Centre (CFMDC), the Sustainability conference, and the Leadership in Environmental and Digital Innovation for Sustainability (LEADS) program at Concordia University. These panel conversations will have follow up, for a publication, and to continue the discussion, October 19 to the 21, within a variety of activities including the following: workshops at Concordia University’s 4th Space, an IMAX screening at the Montreal Science Center, and walks and a screening at the Montreal Botanical Garden.
