Please join us on Wednesday, July 13, from 5:30-7:30 pm EDT, for the Creative Science Shop at the engAGE Living Lab at Cavendish Mall (5800 Cavendish Blvd, Côte Saint-Luc, Quebec – QC H4W 2T5).
This workshop begins with a dance/body activity facilitated by Déborah Maia de Lima, who facilitated a movement hive in the pandemic. We will experiment with body movements it involves, gestures, the sensation of music, and the movements it involves for us. You will be invited to move according to your own movement and no special abilities will be required. Come with clothes that allow your body to move freely and join us!
Afterwards, a round table will allow us to share our experiences and expertise on the subject. What have we learned about this type of activity for our social connections and collective health in a shopping mall?
