I am planning and directing Strategic Creative Retreats
BANFF EMERGENCE LAB
5 days retreat - 2016. My role was to support 3 teams creating a prototype. The Embassy of France in Canada, the Institut Français and the Banff Centre, with the support of On Screen Manitoba, have developed and launched Emergence Lab, the first Franco-Canadian laboratory dedicated to emerging and innovative forms of storytelling for new platforms.
Projet Columbus - Transmedia Edition
1 day retreat - 2010
Aimed at people who were already working in the media field, but who wanted to discover new ways to invent and live stories by maximizing the potential of different platforms, be it television, the Web, video games or any other media. The conference participants could then continue the expedition by enrolling in "à la carte" training courses which allowed them to develop their knowledge on some of the topics covered.
MANITOBA - MUSEUM OF HUMAN RIGHTS
3 days retreat - 2017. The 2017 Creation Lab led by On Screen Manitoba and New Media Manitoba in partnership with the Canadian Museum for Human Rights and the National Film Board (NFB), brought together five teams of creators with backgrounds in visual arts, music, film, television, interactive and immersive digital media fora three-day accelerator. Each team created a prototype for an immersive digital media experience based on themes specific to human rights.
Multiplatform / Multisuccess - MontrEAL & HalifaX

The three-day workshop is designed as a tool for exploring the creation and exploitation of content in a multiplatform environment. The initiative is intended for feature film and television producers and managers of companies active in development, production or distribution of content looking to move into multiplatform creation.
2 days retreat - 2018. My role was to facilitate ideation to artfully & purposefully accelerate innovation, transformation and reinvention. Innovation was the expectation and the only certainty was change. We went to unruly places and developed new dialogues around the discoveries. We modeled & created new experiences around the foundation of the Ocean School Stories.
