LASER 7: Differential climate changes
Climate change brings new challenges both locally and globally. Climates are dependent on changes in the atmosphere that store greenhouse gases resulting from human activities that contribute to rising temperatures. Between 1948 and 2014, the average annual temperature in Canada warmed by 1.6°C, almost double that of other regions of the world (Climate Change Canada). In this situation, how can we think and create with rising sea levels, temperature variations and drought in forests?

Taking Care and Research-Creation @ 87th ACFAS Congress
The Taking Care experience has made it possible to address the issue of collaboration and more particularly the teacher-student relationship in a professional and academic context. This conference is part of a Hexagram network approach that aims to define the contours of the research-creation carried out by its artists-researchers, students, collaborators. At a time when research/creation is increasingly becoming a legitimate and innovative approach, not only in Quebec, but also in Canada and internationally (and particularly in France), the relevance of this conference will therefore depend on its ability to collectively reflect on its forms, practices and modes of dissemination, based on a unique experience conducted during a highly publicized event (at Ars Electronica). More generally, this conference will contribute to concretely considering the specificity, originality and innovative nature of Hexagram's approach in the context of the relationship between the arts and sciences in the production of contemporary knowledge.
