COMPOSITE is a bimonthly networking event dedicated to digital creativity. It was born from an initiative of the Conseil des arts de Montréal and organized each time by a different cultural organization in collaboration with a company in the digital industry. This event aims to create a recurring meeting space between the art world and the industry of the digital sector, by encouraging the meeting and pollination between creators, artist-run centers, organizations, businesses and digital professionals.
Each COMPOSITE takes place according to the same structure. A Minute Inspiration blitz introduces the evening: 10 digital players each have one minute to share a project that has recently had an impact on them, inspired them, touched them. 6 keynote presentations followed, each lasting 6 minutes, of projects selected in advance by the COMPOSITE committee through a call for participants. They can come from the field of art, industry or social innovation; the guiding thread is their common ability to inspire, stimulate innovation and awaken in viewers a desire for discovery and exploration. The event concludes with an evening of networking, discussions, to allow both presenters and participants to forge links and flesh out their respective projects.
For this edition, COMPOSITE honors collaboration. The event will be an opportunity to present projects in which collaborative strategies or solidarity approaches have an important and original place. Two works by Hexagram student members are selected for presentation. Ahreum Lee [Concordia University] will present the video installation Multiple Selves and Ké Medley [Université du Québec à Chicoutimi] will present Compartment_Complex.
