Okay you loyal fans out there, I’m sorry to have left you hanging by not posting for ages. (At this point, if I’ve retained one reader I’ll be happy!)
Anyway, news: I’m starting an Artist’s Community and Photo Studio in Montreal (assuming I can get all of the necessary paperwork and registrations).
The gist is this: affordable photo studio for rent + artists’ shared studio space all in one place where people can mix and mingle and see what others are working on. It’s going to be a space for collaboration between many different types of artists, and I hope we will eventually be able to open a gallery. At the moment, I’m seriously considering a space in the RCA building in St. Henri.
Primarily, the space will be a fully-equipped photo studio for monthly or hourly rent as well as a community resource for artists and studio/work/storage space for rent. We also hope to have room for workshops, etc in addition to a reference/lounge area. The whole idea of the community is to promote cooperation and collaboration between different artistic fields & to put artists in touch with each other while simultaneously promoting their work through exhibitions and (eventually) a small publication.
A few examples of services we’d offer:
Available for rent:
Storage for equipment
Network of artists
Models/ make-up artists for Photographers
Promotion of your work
Anything else we can think of…
So there you have it, the reason (or one of) why I haven’t been updating my blog! Anyway, if you want to stay updated on my progress with this project, join the mailing list!
