Hexagram is an interdisciplinary network dedicated to research-creation addressing the relationships between arts, cultures and technologies. It comprises around forty co-researchers, about fifty national and international collaborators, and a little over 200 students from various artistic disciplines related, in particular, to living arts, visual arts, design, and media arts, while also touching disciplines in the social sciences and humanities or natural sciences and engineering.
Hexagram creates opportunities for knowledge-sharing between experts from different creative disciplines and various fields of research by facilitating collaboration between members in interdisciplinary activities. The Network promotes collaborative work and the sharing of facilities between its 6 mains partner universities: Université du Québec à Montréal and Concordia University, Université de Montréal, École de technologie supérieure, Université du Québec à Chicoutimi, Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue, Université Laval, and McGill University.
It supports the development of experimental or critical research-creation projects and dissemination of the various methodological approaches and theoretical foundations of research-creation through the publication of books, radio broadcasts, videographic material accessible online, the organization of artistic and scientific conferences, exhibitions, concerts, shows, and other creative forms in public space. Hexagram encourages knowledge-sharing and exposure for emerging artists by developing partnerships with educational institutions, artistic organizations, and cultural businesses located in Quebec, Canada, and abroad.
