Consultant in cultural development since the fall of 2014, I am specialized in the fields of cultural policy, cultural mediation, arts administration and project management. I am particularly interested in issues of artistic practices in society and the social role of the artist. My professional activity is at the crossroads of art, research and management. I have worked over the last 15 years for the organizations Culture pour tous and Culture Montreal where I contributed actively to the debate on culture in the heart of Quebec's development. I am also co-founder and vicepresident of a Montreal artist run centre TOP, dedicated to digital art.
