Concordia has launched its new Milieux Institution for Arts, Culture and Technology. The institute is described as “a crossroads for an international network of researchers, artists, graduate students and collaborators,” that contributes to the enhancement of Montreal’s media arts and technologies. Milieux Interim Co-director Bart Simon explains that the institute’s “main focus is on creative and expert articulations of new technologies for the benefit of everyone through the production of tangible, playable, and accessible research.” The institute will feature open studios and labs that will facilitate ideas and support personnel from a wide variety of domains, and will house over 80 faculty and 100 graduate students from Concordia’s faculties.
