VITAMINE IMMERSIVE: take part in a unique experiment in MONTREAL!
La Piscine has teamed up with OASIS Immersion and RE-AK to deploy Vitamine Immersive, a new experiment to study the impact of immersive art on well-being and mental health. This first pilot will focus on the stress and anxiety associated with returning to the workplace post-pandemic.
Our aim : to assess if regular visits to an immersive environment have a positive impact on people’s general well-being and a stress-reducing effect (experimental group) compared to non-participants (control group).
Offer your participation and be among the first to experience Vitamine Immersive, strolling through the immersive Oasis space equipped with connected objects to study the impact on your body and mind.
What are the conditions for participation?
- Be between 25 and 55 years old.
- Have had working conditions affected by the pandemic :
– You moved from a mainly face-to-face job to a remote job at the start of the pandemic.
– You’re experiencing a return to face-to-face employment, since the recent easing of restrictions.
– You must not have had any long breaks or work stoppages in the last 2 years (for health or other reasons).
- Be available for all experimental sessions (6 morning sessions of 20 minutes each at Oasis Immersion, on November 8, 10, 16, 18, 22 and 24). Attendance at all sessions is essential to the reliability of the study.
This initiative is part of La Piscine’s “Future of Work” Lab.
The Future of Work: what are the challenges and opportunities?
La Piscine unveils its first analysis report on the challenges and opportunities facing the future of work. Through expert meetings, field surveys and analyses, La Piscine invites you to reflect on the profound changes shaking the world of work, from the point of view of well-being, the design of spaces and the people who inhabit them.
PROSPECTS AND CHALLENGES FOR POST-COVID SPACES: WHAT ROLE FOR CCIs?
After such a special year in 2020, La Piscine wanted to question the real impact of the pandemic. How have our everyday spaces been turned upside down, and how have we managed to adapt? To answer these questions, we turned to the brains of the cultural and creative industries! And the solutions they’ve come up with, without ever giving up.
2020: should we laugh or cry?
To close the year 2020, La Piscine decided to combine mental health and humor.
For the occasion, animator Jean-Michel Vanasse (Planète Techno) virtually welcomed Marylène Gendron, an up-and-coming comedian, and Mariano Lopez, a psychosocial speaker, to share their experiences on the subject.

ENTREPRENEURSHIP IN THE AGE OF COVID-19
At the height of the crisis in March, the team of La Piscine set up a quick online questionnaire of around twenty questions for cultural and creative entrepreneurs.
The long-term aim is to propose the most appropriate solutions and provide the best possible support.
In spring 2020, faced with the urgency of the situation, La Piscine deployed an emergency platform with the aim of offering short-term support, tailored to entrepreneurs in all areas affecting crisis management in an organization:
- Human resources management,
- Crisis communication,
- Business model adaptation, etc.
