Community, Conservation, Activism: Montréal as a City of Neighbourhoods

CCA elsewhere, in English, online, 17 April, 9am to 12pm EDT

How does a city grow? This question, which first emerged for Phyllis Lambert through photographs she and photographer Richard Pare took in the 1970s, is the starting point and title of Lambert’s next book. For the first part of the final seminar of the SAH conference, held this year in Montréal, Lambert will lay out the first chapter of her book Montreal: The Water’s Edge, presenting key aspects of the city’s architectural heritage.

The conference’s second part will invite a panel of speakers to address questions of neighbourhood-based community organizing, conservation, and activism and issues of race, gender, and accessibility from their unique perspectives. A final round table between Cynthia Hammond, Phyllis Lambert, Nakuset, Eunice Bélidor, Oumalker Idil Kalif, and Laurence Parent will close the program.

The event is free, and registration is required. Please note that registration closes at 4pm Montréal time on Monday 12 April.
