It’s impossible to be bored by Montreal, but it’s easy to be overwhelmed—by our amazing history, diverse culture and vibrant arts scene.
Montreal Mosaic is a place to rediscover your city. A meeting place: a place for sharing stories, a place for personal reflections and community perspectives on the past, present and future of a great Canadian metropolis. It’s a place to explore, question and celebrate English-Montreal’s evolving cultural identities.
In particular, Montreal Mosaic is keen to look at how groups and individuals contribute to the local arts, culture and heritage scenes. The web-magazine features an inventory of organizations and places active on these fronts.
A word about the non-profit organizations that are working on the development of Montreal Mosaic:
