From September 1 to November 20, the Centre d'histoire de Montréal (CHM) will be hosting popular components of the Phi Centre’s permanent programming. CHM was a natural choice for a temporary site during Red Bull Music Academy. After all, the combination of history and multimedia has never been a more significant source of creativity. As Phi Centre founder and director Phoebe Greenberg puts it: “Mobile devices and search engines have put history at our fingertips—countless exciting stories just waiting to be explored. As Montreal nears its 375th anniversary, the relics of the past will inspire a new approach to storytelling.”

In this unique context, visitors will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in virtual reality and discover the very best Canadian short films—all for free.

The mission of the Centre d'histoire de Montréal, the city museum, is to transmit an understanding of Montreal, its cultural diversity, and its tangible and intangible heritage. Engaging with the public, the museum offers its expertise to citizens to present their stories and mementos in exhibits and activities, thus highlighting the different ways Montrealers have forged the urban environment and defined the city's identity.
