In the Fall of 2004, 90 activists, artists and academics from diverse disciplines gathered at McGill University to explore the pressing realities of social, political, economic and institutional modes of control and the urgent significance of constructing an actional politics to (en)counter them.
The challenge of theorizing and developing new forms of resistance will be taken up in: alternatives, encounters, movements. As the conference’s subtitle indicates, will address potential strategies and tactics for confronting these mechanisms of control. Working from the notion that control is often best (en)countered via practices that engage experimental methods, transdisciplinarity and creativity, we hope to foster an environment in which we can construct collective visions for social change.
