About
L’Università Concordia è rinomata per un approccio all’insegnamento e alla ricerca orientato sulle grandi questioni sociali e con una visione d’insieme ampia e a tutto campo. Quale università aperta e impegnata, Concordia incoraggia i suoi 46.000 studenti a diventare cittadini attivi, responsabili e vigili. Poiché è dalla ricerca che viene lo stimolo a pensare in grande, l’Università ospita più di 7.000 studenti dottorali che, con la loro presenza, stimolano lo scambio intellettuale e consolidano le ambizioni dell’università. La Concordia propone più di 300 corsi di primo ciclo e 200 programmi magistrali e dottorali, offre diplomi e abilitazioni in diversi campi e ha una rete di relazioni internazionali con oltre 100 istituzioni in 33 diverse nazioni.
The Mobile Media Lab-Montreal (MML-MTL) is a vibrant centre for media production and theoretical reflection on geo-localized media and digital storytelling. Located in the Department of Communication Studies at Concordia University, the MML-MTL has become a hub for researchers interested in the topics of mobile media within the context of networked societies. Many of their projects investigate the relationship between story and place and explore how people might use new media technologies to forge a critical inquiry into these matters. MML brings together a unique configuration of expertise in art, design, engineering, new media, cultural theory, social science and policy studies.

Role
MML-MTL will provide the art installation core software (original geo-locative technology) and contribute to the implementation of the Performigrations interactive/mobile platform; it will support/assist partners on its high tech components. It will supervise all web based collaborative activities in synergy with Athena RIC and LILEC. It will contribute content on digitelling and migration narratives. Also, it will co-host the Perfomigrations art-installation in Montreal (April 2016). In addition, it will contribute to the project internationalisation, dissemination and sustainability.[/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
