Special Projects for Youth

Special projects at Campus SAT for youth offer an educational model at the crossroad between science, technology, society and art.

Ateliers_projets spéciaux pour jeunesse

Our Special Projects program serves thousands of youth participants each year.

To be proactive, while remaining critical, are essential values when approaching the digital universe to encourage our children and teenagers to grow and shape their place in the 21st century. The educational activities brought forward in this model encourage youth not to be simple consumers of technology, but to become true creators of original content. By sparking interest and awakening curiosity, our activities encourage a proactive use of technology in everyday life, while developing artistic skills and knowledge.

RADICART- A teenage group determined to enrich the city with art

In collaboration with the Théâtre Bluff Antioche, RadicART is an installation created by a team of young artists from Mont-De-La-Salle high school and the artist Sébastien Lafleur from the SAT. This collaborative artwork is inspired by issues of integration and radicalization among youth. By turning perceptions around, the project aims to raise public awareness about the subject and create a harmonious and supportive community. Combining video, sculpture, and light, the construction of this multimedia installation work allowed young artists to learn about video production and editing, photography, 3D modeling, and sculpture.

Visits and school projects with the CSDM

For six years, the collaboration between Campus SAT and the Commission scolaire de Montréal (CSDM) has been offering students and teachers the chance to participate in creative digital media workshops and to visit the SAT, inspiring the next generation of creators/researchers. The discovery and creation workshops in VJing particularly allow students to experiment with real-time video mixing. By supporting the development of schools connected to current and emerging culture, we offer students educational experiences that go beyond the traditional curriculum. In addition, through projects related to their interests, we favour the success of young people by updating the way they view their school, while offering new opportunities to express the full potential of their talents.

Create a circus

A telepresence event organized with TOHU and the Jacques et Michel Auger Arts Center. Two teams, one in Victoriaville and the other in Montreal, shared the stage of a circus creating a live performance using telepresence technology. In the form of a collaborative game, the workshop invited young participants to imagine together the scenes of a short film on the theme of the circus. Using stop-motion animation techniques and simple, identical props in both locations, the young creators discovered the creative possibilities of telepresence.
