Montreal Offers Opportunities To Artists
I think Montreal contains a huge amount of opportunity for artists on an ongoing way because it’s so cultural diverse. I think because of the historical and contemporary context of Quebecois life. You know, Quebecois culture is surrounded by this ocean of anglophone identity which is Canada and America.
There’s a connection to culture here in Montreal that runs deeper than so many of the other cities I find in Canada. And I don’t mean to say like where I grew up in Winnipeg was very dynamic. It’s very culturally rich, but Montreal’s much more extravagant in how it celebrates culture and how it invites people to that table. It’s a feast here.
