Griffintown Selon Vous - Office de Consultation Publique de Montréal

Hello dog parc gallery followers! Happy new year. We hope you've all had great quality time with your companion species and families.

On January 20-21, pouf! will be present at the following event, "Griffintown Selon Vous" - an initiative of the Office of Public Consultation, which is interested to hear from community organization and arts groups about the future of Griffintown. The history of public consultation for Griffintown's swift development is not a great one - many decisions were made in the first 10 years of the new millennium which were not what Griffintown's users wanted. So this public event is a great opportunity to show the 250 registered participants/visitors what it is we DO want to see in this special part of Montreal. Of course, our particular concern will be Parc Gallery's protection as a dog park and community amenity. Park users Claude Trépanner, Isabelle Roy will be present with pouf! and Shauna Janssen, who is the curator behind all the amazing art projects you've seen in Griffintown since September 2009 ( We will share our photographic project, show some of our research about Parc Gallery's history, and have publications and petitions for visitors to see and sign. Join us or check this blog the following week for an update about how the event went.
