Re(:)Thinking Community Calendar 2012-2013


Project Description

Communities can arise out of a sense of place, common interests or affiliations. Communities can foster a sense of belonging—or exclusion—and can be shaped not onlyby social ties, but also by the built environment, civil society, innovation, communication networks and by macro political and economic structures. The recent exponential growth of the Internet has also given rise to a new type of community: the online or virtual community. Here, we look at the concept of community from diverse perspectives, including: access and equity issues in health and mental health; knowledge sharing, innovation and activism within varied communities; and at the strength that comes from
building social ties among individuals and groups.

The SEDE Calendar project showcases the talent, hard work and dedication of McGill staff, students, faculties, local artists and community organizations. We hope that you enjoy the Calendar, and we invite you to learn more about SEDE’s outreach, engagement and education initiatives by visiting our website or joining us on Facebook.
