Mission and governance
Hexagram is an interdisciplinary network dedicated to research-creation addressing the relationships between arts, cultures and technologies. It comprises around forty co-researchers, forty collaborators, and a little over 200 students from various artistic disciplines related, in particular, to living arts, visual arts, design, and media arts, while also touching disciplines in the social sciences and humanities or natural sciences and engineering.
COLLABORATION AND INTERDISCIPLINARITY
It promotes collaborative work and the sharing of facilities by federating human and material resources between 8 universities, mainly from Université du Québec à Montréal and Concordia University, but also those of Université de Montréal, École de technologie supérieure, Université du Québec à Chicoutimi, Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue, Université Laval, and McGill University.
It creates opportunities for knowledge-sharing between experts from different creative disciplines and various fields of research by facilitating collaboration between members in interdisciplinary activities.
EXPERIMENTATION AND MOBILITY
It supports the development of experimental or critical research-creation projects by offering residency programs and national and international mobility grants.
DISSEMINATION, CURATION AND SCIENTIFIC ACTIVITIES
It helps explicate and disseminate the various methodological approaches and theoretical foundations of research-creation through the publication of books, radio broadcasts, and videographic material accessible online.
It organizes artistic and scientific events such as symposia, conferences, exhibitions, concerts, shows, and other creative forms in public space.
It encourages knowledge-sharing and exposure for emerging artist by developing partnerships with educational institutions, artistic organizations, and cultural businesses located in Quebec, Canada, and abroad.
