Join us on Thursday, January 20th, from 3:30-5:00 pm for the Creative Science Shop on Physical Health: Challenges and Tools.

Join us for an online discussion on the topic of physical health and challenges, introduced by Boutaine Chafi and Debbie Byer.

Boutaina, a 4th year Concordia student in Behavioural Neurosciences, will present a video conceived with her colleagues during Professor Karen Li’s course.

Debbie Byer, engAGE Living Lab community member, will share her perspective on staying active with physical challenges.

We are looking forward to hearing your thoughts and ideas, in a community discussion on physical changes and how we can benefit from the tools in our environment to maintain a healthy body.

The Creative Science Shop is a community round table, both online and in-person at the Cavendish Mall. It is an exchange of ideas, innovations, scientific and artistic projects. This intergenerational group brings together passion in the arts and sciences from older adults, students, and researchers.


Coming soon!


The Creative engAGE Living Lab and the Concordia University Art Hives invites the community to represent in any 2D visual media the space(s) in which we have all been creating during the past two years.

“Art was the link between everything. It was very important to me during the pandemic because everything stopped at once, but the Hive came to us at home,” Desmarteaux.

“Juste quelques espaces”

Photo collage. 2020-2022

40 moments
40 espaces de mon quotidien
40 instants de créations
Sur le bout de la table de cuisine
Au chalet, dehors, sur la plage
Simplement créer
Créer pour vivre
Vivre pour créer

“La Ruche d’Art sur Zoom”

Collage, Assemblage and Plant on cardboard.


ESTelle Gagné

Rayonnants de sérénité?
Quand la douleur nous assomme et le corps ne supporte pas ces graves cris
Quand les dents du désespoir mordent l’esprit
Quand la mort cannibale veut-elle faire de nous une bouchée
Nous nous réfugions dans notre jardin intérieur
Quelqu’un nous chante une berceuse et peu à peu notre je enfantin s’endort
Nous retrouvons nos fidèles amoureux de jeunesse clapotant dans les eaux de l’Océan
Tout d’un coup nous dansons la valse du couple joyeux
Nous tournons seules ou seuls
nous apprivoisons nos peurs
nous inventons l’état de grâce
Malgré les maladies et les blessures
Malgré le vieillissement et les accidents
Malgré les tourments et les tourmentes
La fête de la vie est encore au rendez-vous.

Adios Puerto Vallarta!

Ce fut une belle expérience relaxante que de faire de l’art tous les jours durant mes vacances.

Mon espace de création

Depuis le 13 mars 2020, mon espace de vie et de création se sont fusionnés. Autant cuisiner pour nourrir mon corps, autant l’art visuel nourrit mon mental. Ma cuisine, sa grande table de bois, ses chaises solides, mon portable Apple ont été littéralement colonisés durant ces mois d’enfermement.

Le thème de l’exposition était difficile pour moi à illustrer en l’art visuel mais voilà la photographie d’une installation de l’autel d’art organisé qui illustre bien mon désordre créateur.

Bienvenue dans mon intimité sans virus.

Title: “Un espace libre” / ” A Free Space”

Collage mix media

8″1/2 x 12″

Se créer un espace libre dans un monde changeant
Avancer avec des repères vers l’inconnu
Installation sur le balcon, sur fond stable et changeant

Create oneself a free space in a changing world
To move forward with reference points towards the unknown
Installation on the balcony, on a stable and changing background

Créer dans le désordre
Créer sous pression
Partager, partager, partager
Zoomer, zoomer, zoomer
Tenter de représenter l’amour
Sur un bout de papier
Tout ranger
Tenter de vivre l’amour, l’affection

Micheline desmarteaux, 2022

Elegant Orchids. Watercolor.
I love beauty from nature to add colors to my creative space

Prince. Pastel.
My pets are a relaxed and cozy addition to my studio when I create. This image is my little Prince.

Blue Vase and Flowers Blooming. Pastel.
Flowers have a spirit of their own that add energy to my creative space.

I appreciate the efforts from the beginning of going on line to the creative process that has resulted. Just like the process of creating art ! So pleased to see continued results. @sharonb.s

“Une salle à diner, devenue salle à dessiner, à placoter, à partager.
Échange de couleur, échange de chaleur humaine.
S’enfermer chez soi, pour finalement connecter un peu plus avec le monde, quel paradoxe.
Prendre du temps, prendre du recul, se poser.”

Montagne à gravir ou descendre. Encre végétale.

Ma salle à diner, mon atelier. Crayons de couleurs.
