Concordia dans la rue- ‘Concordia dans la Rue-Digital Divide[d] into Self
Course Description and Objectives
For the Design department, ‘being on the street’ literally means to put into practice the programme’s philosophical
directive of creating links to and engaging with Montreal communities via student internships, collaborative projects, and
public artworks. This project aims at creating a model for guiding self expression and digital literacy for youths at high risk.
This course welcomes a group of 20 to 25 students enrolled at the DLR and DESTA alternative school, who will acquire
computer software training and digital language skills through self published digital artworks and writings. DART students
and DLR and DESTA students work together to produce a book / exhibition / disc launch of DLR and DESTA students
digital image , music and text works (in the forms of postcards, posters, book works, newsletter, web design, video, music,
games, digital reflexive portfolio, and/or animation).
The Design Art students mentor the DLR and DESTA students; the projects revolve around the students’ wants in terms
of creation. As the Concordia Dans La Rue is a project in partnership, mentoring is usually given on a one-on-one basis

Pour le département de Design de l’Université Concordia, être ‘Dans La Rue’ se décrit par la mise en pratique des
directives philosophiques du programme et ce, tout en s’engageant envers la communauté Montréalaise. L’objectif de ce

Ce cours accueille 20 à 25 étudiants inscrits à l’école alternative DLR AND DESTA, et ceux-ci enrichiront leurs
connaissances informatiques à travers de nombreuses créations digitales. Les étudiants DLR et DESTA, ainsi que ceux
en Design, doivent collaborer afin de créer un livre / exposition / lancement de disque qui mettront en valeur les créations
des participants DLR et DESTA. Ce projet peut être remis sous différentes formes : cartes postales, affiches, livres,
journal, musique, site web, photographies, jeu et/ou animation, portfolio reflexif digital.
Il est important que l’étudiant en Design agisse seulement en tant que mentor lors de ces rencontres; les projets et
réalisation à l’intérieur du cours évoluent strictement par rapport aux désirs artistiques de l’étudiant DLR AND DESTA.
Comme le projet Concordia Dans La Rue en est un de collaboration, l’intéraction entre étudiants a habituellement lieu
individuellement, c’est-à-dire un-à-un. Aucuns plans de cours de la part des étudiants en Design ne doit être préparer à
l’avance; l’enseignement se fait sur les lieux selon les besoins des participants présents.
Quelques participants irons sur les lieux de la mission bon accueil pour travailler sur un projet d'inclusion numérique avec
