Cultural Diversity and City Development: A Human Landscape with an Urban Identity?

City Talks

In Montreal and the greater metropolitan area, many neighbourhoods and public spaces are shaped, defined and revitalized through the contribution of cultural communities. How can we recognize these places of diversity and their heritage? How do we adapt urban planning and urban land management to them?


  • Annick Germain, Associated Professor-Researcher, Institut national de la recherche scientifique
  • Justin Bur, Mile End Memories administrator and PhD Student, Urban Studies, UQAM
  • Alan DeSousa, Mayor of Saint-Laurent and City Councillor

City Talks is a series of lectures bringing  together city thinkers  and builders to share their views on current practical urban issues affecting Montrealers.

The lectures are followed by an informal and friendly chat over a glass of wine.
Location:  J. Armand Bombardier Theatre at the McCord Museum
