Wesley asked a few Quebec collectives to make new works illuminating their collaborative style. The five-member collective CRUM, (it stands for Le centre de recherche urbaine de Montréal) is presenting the residue of their shared writing project: the CRUMIFESTO. Completing each other’s sentences on specially modified typewriters, they have created non-linear narratives in the mode of the exquisite corpse.

(“Throughout the ages, forces beyond our control have oppressed our right to cut our toenails on the living room couch” or “There has never been a better time to claim our right to sweeten the deal. ALWAYS USE REAL SUGAR.”) Delight here comes from expecting the unexpected.” — Sarah Milroy
