    > What is Hexagram?

    Consisting of over 100 members working from its two main research antennas at l’Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) and Concordia University, with additional researchers from l’Université de Montréal, l’École de technologie supérieure, l’Université du Québec à Chicoutimi and McGill University, the network also collaborates with industry, arts and cultural organisations in Québec, across Canada, and around the world (Europe, Latin America, the United States, Asia and Australia). The quality and diversity of research and technical infrastructures available to researchers and graduate students makes Hexagram unique.

     

    > What is the history of Hexagram?

    In 2002, Hexagram Institute, a non-profit organization, received significant support from Valorisation-Recherche-Québec (VRQ) and the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI). This investment allowed for the creation of research infrastructures for media arts and technology at both Concordia and UQAM. These two research platforms offered a site to unify research-creation activities in Montreal and Canada. Parallel to the Hexagram Institute was the development of Le Centre interuniversitaire des arts médiatiques (CIAM), which was funded by the Fonds québécois de recherche – société et culture (FRQSC) from 2001 to 2010 and supported research dissemination. In Spring 2011, Hexagram and CIAM merged as an emerging strategic cluster. Now, through continued funding from FRQSC, Hexagram is recognized as an international network.
