Lab Life

Co-creating Conversations asks local and visiting researchers, practitioners and makers to consider their roles in building and contributing to lab life. Through this project, we seek to understand what it means to work and innovate in these shared living spaces, and how people work to actively redefine innovative processes of all sorts. We asked people to explain what strategies they employed to shape their labs into spaces that are receptive of ideas, inclusive of a wide-range of people, and encouraging of collaboration. How have people been successful in stepping out of the lab and bringing their ideas into the community, and, conversely, in bringing communities into the lab?

Co-creating Conversation is a project by Concordia University’s Faculty of Arts and Science, carried out in collaboration with Ageing + Communication + Technologies (ACT). It features interviews edited as short audio capsules that provide listeners with a glimpse into lab life here in Montreal and in other locales.
