Making It Montreal’ is a unique research and promotion project highlighting English-speaking artists who chose to make Montreal home.

All of these artists moved to Montreal from elsewhere in Canada in adulthood to pursue their careers. The round-table discussion will focus on the support and resources available for English-speaking visual artists in Montreal.

The discussion will also continue online on the project’s interactive website, http://www.makingitmontreal.org, which features galleries of works, blog posts and links to resources for English-speaking artists in Montreal.

Making It Montreal’ is organized by ARCMTL (best known for its Expozine small press fair and Distroboto network of cultural vending machines) and is made possible through the assistance of Canadian Heritage’s Cultural Development Fund.
