In 2015, Grimposium partnered with Evenko’s Heavy Montreal music festival to create a one-of-a-kind, academic, metal-head meet-up. In its second year, Grimposium featured panel discussions, art exhibitions, film screenings and live performances spread out over Concordia’s downtown campus and Montreal concert venues
We also partnered with the Someone project (Social Media Education Every Day) with some of the panel discussions leading to exchanges promoting individuality and confronting social ills like sexism, homophobia and xenophobia in the community.
