Centre des mémoires montréalaises – MEM exhibitions

The MEM has both free and paid exhibition spaces that will be available to you throughout the day of the conference.

 

The free exhibition spaces include “A Mile in My Shoes,” a collaboration with Empathy Museum, where you can explore a shoe store full of stories about the owners of different pairs of shoes.

 

The paid exhibition at the moment is “Detours – Urban Experiences,” an immersive video exhibition that lets you experience the worlds of different Montrealers. The total duration of the exhibition is approximately 90 minutes.

 

You can buy tickets for the paid exhibits on the day of the conference (the group rate ticket is $10.30).
