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.
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.
