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 advantages and challenges facing English-speaking visual artists in Montreal, and will be moderated by Billy Mavreas (owner of Galerie Monastiraki.) This follows the in-depth discussion that took place on February 4 (see summary here.)

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 Canada Heritage's Cultural Development Fund.
