Creating Counter-Narratives about Long-Term Heroin Users through Digital Storytelling and Documentary Photography
Friday January 29 – 12:00 AM to 2:00 PM
In many photojournalism and documentary images of heroin users, photographers represent their subjects as exotic, as outcasts, and as dangerous to society. Aaron Goodman has been attempting to create images that represent heroin users in more balanced and human ways. In this workshop, Aaron will discuss a digital storytelling workshop that he facilitated and a photo documentary that he produced about long-term heroin users in Vancouver, B.C. taking part in North America’s first heroin-assisted treatment program.

McGill Megagame: New World Order 2035
February 20, 2016
PAXsims, in conjunction with the International Relations Students Association of McGill (IRSAM) and the Political Science Students’ Association (PSSA) will be holding Montreal’s first ever megagame: New World Order 2035.
It is the year 2035… and it is no longer the Earth that we once knew. Countries around the world face resource shortages, the social and political challenges presented by new technologies, population pressures, migration and refugee crises, and rapidly accelerating global warming—as well as an alarming breakdown of international cooperation.
Up to one hundred participants will assume the roles of national decisionmakers, international organizations, scientists, corporations, journalists, rebels, organized crime, and others. While we may or may not chart the future course of human civilization, it is sure to be a engaging day full of political intrigue, conspiracies, and crisis. You’ll find additional details here
