THE ART SOUTERRAIN FESTIVAL WANTS TO DREAM BIG!
For the first time, we are unable to financially help artists by traditional means and we reach out to you to help us with our programme.
Sponsor an artist of your choice this year and you will offer the possibility to his/her work seen by more than 400 000 festival attendees.
Our 7th’s edition theme:
Security in our Society: What Remains of our Personal Freedoms?
Local, national and international artists answer- through their works- to the contemporary questions concerning the equilibrium between the increased need for security by the population and the individual freedoms.
Each artist proposes a vision of a freedom espace
Your support will allow them to present a major artwork and present it in the underground circuit during the 15 days of the festival.
You, the faithful of Art Souterrain…
And above all, the fans of our 10 artists, we need you in order to collect 10 000$ in only 55 days! Each of them will create an unseen and major artwork on the theme: Security in our Society: What Remains of our Personal Freedoms?
If our kind donors allow us, we will be able to make a difference to 5 more artists who wish to produce major artworks for this edition of the festival as well
Let us present them:
A non-profit organization founded in 2009, Art Souterrain showcases each year international contemporary art institutions, artists, and the architectural and cultural heritage of downtown Montreal’s underground city.
With the creation of these 10 major artworks, we are committed to offer the public an enriching and memorable experience. We also wish to bring new artistic practices more accessible to the general public and make it participate in its promotion and influence in Quebec and the rest of the world.
