Gentriville: an interactive experience on gentrification

Gentriville: an interactive experience on gentrification

Gentriville is an interactive fiction designed by Marie Sterlin and Emmanuelle Walter. The two creators will present their project and share with us the results of their research and their thoughts in order to begin a shared discussion on the gentrification phenomenon which affects Mile End as well as many other Montreal neighbourhoods. Together we can imagine some possible solutions.
