"We are here to redesign the map of Montreal, but in fact we're redesigning  the world."

Louise,
participant of the Métissages Urbains program, residence of Emmanuelle Jacques, Social Mapping Workshop

○Our co-director and co-founder Nadia Duguay is simply unstoppable: holding conferences  for the whole of the last week of September in Rivière-du-Loup and Toronto, she now continues her journey, and headed to Edmonton where she will give a lecture with Jeanne-Marie Rugira, professor in the Department of Psychosociology and Social Work at the UQAR, at the  congrès annuel de la francophonie albertaine (annual congress of Francophonie in Alberta) on the 13th of October.

○ Because summer was wonderfully rich in meetings and interactions, workshops and sharing on the Trickster side, Jani Greffe-Bélanger, Mediator and Indigenous Project Manager, provided us a with a few words about her ''tricksterian'' experiences. An article to discover on our blog!
○ In the series "We're Recruiting", we are looking for an Inter-Project Operations Coordinator for the month of December 2017, a new opportunity to join the gang!

Try your luck if you want to join the gang: we are also looking for an Accountant and Administrative Support person, then if you know the Simple Accounting software and the Microsoft Office Suite, apply now to rh@exeko.org. We will welcome you with open arms.

This is a first for idAction: our program is setting camp at Boulot Vers for a cycle of 4 workshops. Facilitated by two of Exeko's mediators, Frédéric Péloquin and Tiphaine Barailler, the workshops will allow young people to develop their critical thinking skills and learn more about citizen participative education.

Consultation On Homelessness : Mission Accomplished

At the beginning of the summer, Serge Lareault, Protector of persons in situations of homelessness, commissioned us to carry out a consultation on the City of Montreal's next action plan on homelessness. In total, during 9 outings, we reached more than 90 people ton the streets or in contact with our community partners. Many ideas came out and we were eager to hand them over to Mr. Serge Lareault.

 Lights on Métissages Urbains 2017: Co-creations
They were seven in number and thrilled us all summer, but all good things have an end. So, one last time, we thank the seven artists who led these beautiful co-creative projects, but we also want to thank all of the co-creators who have enthusiastically participated in each of these projects. And if you are already nostalgic about these moments and encounters, check out on our Flickr to see or review all the great the pictures that came out of the projects.

We love our community
 
Each month, in this section we present to you one or more of these magnificent human beings  gravitating around us, volunteer, participant, partner ... This week, Tiffanie Guffroy presents to you Tatiana Fraser:
