The Transdisciplinary and International Virtual Hub study is an initiative of Van Grimde Corps Secrets, in collaboration with the RQD, the Creation and New Media department of UQAT, and Hela Zahar, PHD, Director of the Pôle lavallois d’enseignement supérieur en arts numériques et économie créative.
On September 2, 2020, Synapse C‘s Director of Analysis, Viêt Cao, presented the results of the survey on the creation of a Transdisciplinary and International Virtual Hub for the arts and research communities to our partners. Éric Trépanier, Director – Corporate Intelligence at Synapse C, wrote an executive summary to outline the main points of the analysis. Synapse C’s analysis was in addition to the responses organized and analyzed through Google Forms. The survey was designed in July 2020 by Van Grimde Corps Secrets, in collaboration with Agence Mickaël Spinnhirny.
Although VGCS has been conducting, since 2011, projects bringing together numerous creators and researchers (this is evidenced by the bodyinquestions.com platform which brings together the work of around thirty researchers and artists), with the HUB, this community is growing considerably, and we would like to thank the 137 respondents from our networks and those of our partners who joined the initiative.
We would like to thank our partners who contributed to the monitoring of the changes in practice induced by digital culture and by social distancing: Regroupement des arts interdisciplinaires du Québec, Réseau canadien pour les musiques nouvelles, Petit Théâtre du vieux Noranda, Danse Danse, InDance, Plan B-Creative Agency for the Performing Arts (Hambourg), Agora de la danse, ELEKTRA, Agence Mickaël Spinnhirny, Action at a distance, Le Centre National des Arts, l’Ecole Supérieure de Ballet du Québec, Productions Rhizome, VanessaGoodmanProjects, Eltoro Studio, Joanne Lalonde, dean of UQAM’s Faculty of Arts, Dr Isabelle Choisnières, Dr François-Joseph Lapointe, Dr Marie-Hélène Boudrias and Marilene Oliver.
