Old rail yard Outremont

Call for Participants

This summer come join us to collectively build Mont Réel, a new mountain in Montreal which will be a gathering place for all and an in-situ laboratory to experiment with urban (bio)diversity.

Mont Réel is an urban installation inspired by Mount Royal Park, a historical landmark in the city which has become a popular place for citizens to gather, play, do sports, discover and learn; it is a place where the sacred historical dimension intermingles with the profane, terrestrial and democratic practices of a ‘’real’’ mountain.

The European artist collective ConstructLab, at the invitation of the Goethe-Institut and the French Consulate in Quebec, and with the support of the University of Montreal, is launching a call for participants to collaborate in the construction of Mont Réel. Join us to learn wood construction methods, collectively explore themes dealing with transitory urban spaces and to simply live and create together.

From Mont Royal to Mont Réel: come contribute to the social and cultural activation of the former Outremont Rail Yard, an area in transition that will soon welcome this new mountain peak.

For more information:  Construct Lab: MONT RÉEL  - Collaborative Workshop is supported by the Goethe-Institut, the Federal Foreign Office of the Republic of Germany, the Consulat général de France à Québec, the Deutsch-Französischer Kulturfonds and the Université de Montréal and is presented as part of “Germany@Canada 2017 - Partners from Immigration to Innovation”.
