I worked on this website website when Paul Shrivastava was the direector of Concordia University’s David O’Brien Centre for Sustainable Enterprise. The website isn’t currently active, but there is still a lot of great information on this site for people interested in the ability of art to make measurable changes – in a community, in a space, in people’s lives. The website simply documented and categorized projects to facilitate research in this area.
We were particularly interested in art as intervention; pieces that physically change a place, pieces that implicate community members in its creation, pieces that take information and transform it into something digestible, comprehensible, and, frequently, beautiful. This project was the inspiration for the Collaboratoire project.
