With its roots in the Montreal neighbourhood of Quartier des Spectacles, this research-creation project challenges the participant to observe what is normally ignored; dusty windows, cracks in the pavement, discarded coffee cups, old caution tape; to discover alternative narratives of the area.
The project is guided by the question of what can be learnt of the social-historical context of the Quartier des Spectacles neighbourhood, and urban spaces in general, through engaging with the found debris.
Narrative Debris is a research-creation project that uses a set of embodied and participatory methods; walking, collection, and paper making; to better understand the complex layers of relationships and stories held within urban spaces.
You are invited to visit the constantly evolving Narrative Debris website. Your interaction is welcomed and encouraged.
