Canderel x MASSIVart | MASSIVart - APPLICATION DEADLINE: March 14th, 2021 at midnight

Canderel and MASSIVart are teaming up to bring uplifting and colourful art to the Mile-Ex. After consulting the Mile-Ex community about their vision for the future of the neighbourhood, we are launching this call for artists.

The overall project aims to rehabilitate the building located at 6600 St-Urbain in the Mile-Ex through various architectural enhancements. Two murals will be incorporated into the rehabilitation of the building and are aimed to promote the local arts community while highlighting the neighbourhood’s rich past.

The main objective is to create an impactful and engaging dialogue with the local community through art. Canderel wants to create an inspiring place that will bring colour and life to the building and resonate with the community.
