In November 2020, the Landscape of Hope collective conducted a COVID-safe artists residency at the 4th Space at Concordia University in Montreal / Tiohtià:ke. Below are videos of the final performance as well as interviews with the musicians and visual artists.
Over the period of over a week, the team collaborated in creating soundscapes and visual representations of resilience in a COVID-era.
In attendance were Landscape of Hope creators Vivek Venkatesh and Owen Chapman, collaborators Martin Lelonde (UQAM) and Annabelle Brault. Concordia students were Nik Forrest, Éva Roy and Lou Raskin. UQAM students were Marilou Lyonnais Archambault and Michel Poulin.
Concordia student, Nakitta Hannah documented the event and it was organised by Kathryn Urbaniak. The residency was funded by Canadian Heritage and the FRQSC, and made possible thanks to The Office of the Vice-President, Research and Graduate Studies (OVPRGS) and the 4th Space.
