Colloquium: 2015 McGill Colloquium, Montreal QC

June 5, 2015 - June 6, 2015

The 2015 McGill Colloquium, Improvisation and Community Health, will take place June 5-6 as a partnered event run by IICSI, the McGill Institute for Health and Public Policy and the Société des arts libres et actuels. The schedule for the Colloquium is now available and may be viewed in both French and English by visiting the conference page here. Keynote speakers include Susan Bickford (Rethinking Socratic Citizenship) and Phillip Bimstein (Composing a Community).

This conference will explore themes related to improvisation and community health, asking questions such as: How might the improvisatory arts play a role in creating healthy communities? What do policy makers have to learn from improvisers, and improvisers from policy makers? How might improvisatory models of the distribution of agency, responsibility, ownership and action translate into constructive models for improving community health? What is/could be/should be the role and function of the improvising artist in creating and maintaining healthy communities? How might a study of the improvisatory reveal hidden assumptions, agendas and shortcomings in our conception of what constitutes a healthy community? What are the similarities and differences between “unhealthy” improvisations and “ill” communities?
