Institute of Community Inquiry

Institute for Community Inquiry (ICI) is a participatory art project by Eugenio Salas and Alessandra Renzi. ICI employed the remixing of media as a tool to provide alternative ways of making, consuming, and circulating artistic experiences by building a polyphonic base fordialogue and community memory in the aftermath of the collective trauma resulting from the G8/G20 protests in Toronto in June 2010.
