Canal: Walking the Post-industrial Lachine Canal

Sunday June 5  7:00 AM to 9:00 AM

UQAM, pavillon J.-A. De Sève (DS)  DS Registration table (meeting point)

Canal: Walking the post-industrial Lachine Canal (COHDS, 2013 bilingual – bilingue) is an audiowalk and booklet that takes listeners from the Atwater Market to the Saint Gabriel Lock, exploring the post-industrial transformation of a once heavily industrialized area. The Lachine Canal area has undergone dramatic changes, as mills and factories were closed and then demolished or converted into high-end condominiums. The adjoining working-class neighbourhoods were devastated by deindustrialization, losing half of their population between 1961 and 1991. Our audiowalk and booklet aim to make visible some of these absences and divides, contributing to a wider discussion about the politics of urban change. Over the course of the walk, you will hear stories from those who worked or lived alongside the canal. You can download the audiowalk at www.postindustrialmontreal.ca or use one of our mp3 players.

Through the alleys of Saint-Henri – guided by Pohanna Pyne Feinberg

Sunday June 5  7:00 AM to 9:00 AM

UQAM, pavillon J.-A. De Sève (DS)  DS Registration table (meeting point)

Movement, stillness, and creation will be combined during this walk as participants are encouraged to attune themselves to the environment through conscious emplacement. They will awaken their sensory awareness by experimenting with deep listening, observing impermanence and slow walking. Weather permitting, participants will also be invited to create a cyanotype photogram with the materials they found. An in situ photogram is an image made in collaboration with the environment and it enhances one’s appreciation for the subtle nuances that can be revealed through connection to place over time. In complement to the other activities offered during the conference, this walk will raise questions about the influence of embodied knowledge in place-based research. No previous experience with art making is needed.

Fleur dans le fleuve(COHDS, 2012 en français – in French)

À chaque année, en avril, la communauté rwandaise de Montréal se réunit pour commémorer les centaines de milliers d’hommes, femmes et enfants qui ont été assassinés pendant le génocide de 1994. La marche audioguidée emprunte le parcours de la commémoration, de la station de métro Berri-UQAM (au coin des rues Berri et Sainte-Catherine) jusqu’à la tour de l’Horloge qui surplombe le fleuve Saint-Laurent, dans le Vieux-Port. Cette marche mènera les participants à travers les rues animées de Montréal tout en étant guidés par les voix de Montréalais d’origine rwandaise qui partageront leur histoire. Comme les histoires partagées sont de nature sensible, l’audio n’est pas disponible en ligne.

“In Griffintown / Dans le Griff” and “Scandal! Vice, crime and morality in Montreal, 1940-1960”

Tuesday June 7  7:00 AM to 9:00 AM

Concordia, Engineering, Computer Science and Visual Arts Integrated Complex Building (EV) – EV_Atrium (meeting point)

Guided visits to two exhibitions, Centre d’histoire de Montréal (bilingual – bilingue)

The Centre d’histoire de Montréal presents Dans le Griff that takes visitors into the neighbourhood of Griffintown, as depicted through the lives and memories of the Mercier family. Their life stories will take participants down the streets of an industrial sector that has undergone quite a metamorphosis. Griffintown is one of the oldest industrial and working-class neighbourhoods in Montreal. In the forefront is the work of G. Scott MacLeod, including the oral histories he collected as part of his documentary project, as well as his visual art.

Scandal! Vice, Crime and Morality in Montreal, 1940-1960: Canada’s largest city in the mid-20th century, Montreal was, as still is, a port city and a transportation, business, and immigration hub. In the early 1920s, Montreal acquired the reputation of being a city of pleasure.

Le Vieux-Montréal, quartier Bonsecours

Friday June 3  1:00 PM to 3:00 PM 

UQAM, pavillon J.-A. De Sève (DS) – DS Registration table (meeting point)

Walking tour (in French)

Avant de s’appeler le Vieux-Montréal, la vieille ville était le cœur vivant de Montréal habité par l’ensemble de ses classes sociales : riches et pauvres, artisans et hommes politiques, ouvriers et propriétaires fonciers, esclaves et notaires, juges et débardeurs… Le quartier Bonsecours au nord du marché a gardé plus longtemps que tout autre une fonction résidentielle et la présence d’une population de condition modeste. Le circuit explore les commerces, les écoles, les usines, les rues et les maisons où vivaient ces Montréalais au centre de la ville d’autrefois. Du faubourg Saint-Louis au fleuve, de la maison du Calvet aux traces de la communauté syrienne libanaise, du refuge Meurling au premier emplacement de l’hôpital Notre-Dame, il propose la découverte d’un quartier dont l’histoire témoigne de celle de la ville dans son ensemble et qui fait partie du passé de tous les Montréalais.
