Composite #30: FIFA x Thinkwell Studio Montréal

3 h
This event will be animated in French and English.
FIFA Connexions is organizing the 30th Composite in co-presentation with Thinkwell Studio Montreal which will take place on March 17th 2022.

Presented by Marc Kandalaft, Émilie Grenier
Hosted by Geneviève Borne.

COMPOSITE is a bi-monthly networking event dedicated to digital creativity. It was born from an initiative of the Conseil des arts de Montréal, and coordinated by MAPP_MTL in collaboration with other important actors of the Montreal digital scene.
This event aims to create a recurrent meeting space between the art and industry of the digital sector, by encouraging the meeting and pollination between creators, artist-run centers, organizations, companies and digital professionals.

Each COMPOSITE takes place around 3 major moments:

  • Blitz Minute Inspiration introduces the evening: 10 digital actors each have one minute to share an announcement that has recently impacted, inspired or touched them.

  • 6 keynote presentations of 6 minutes each, projects selected by the COMPOSITE committee through a call for participants. They can be from the art world, industry or social innovation; the common thread is their ability to inspire, stimulate innovation and awaken in the audience a desire for discovery and exploration.

  • An evening of networking and discussion to allow both presenters and participants to network and develop their respective projects.

Émilie Grenier

Émilie Grenier

Émilie F. Grenier wants you to forget, for an instant, where you are. Using the real world as her canvas, she weaves narrative threads with traces of augmentation to create magical spaces, instilling her work with a quiet sense of wonder. As Head of Creative at Thinkwell Studio Montréal, Émilie sets the creative vision for the studio and leads her team to create large-scale multisensory experiences, in both built and natural environments. Working over the last 15 years in a range of disciplines and mediums including theater, film, experimental digital narratives, VR, and AR — she is drawn to the possibilities that technology offers less to wow, but to produce a magical suspension of disbelief. As a mother of two young children, she strives to create meaningful work that will last generations, whether in a glass box in a museum, or ephemerally in our memories.
