My First Biennale
To encourage emerging artists and companies as well as diversity, My First Biennale offers six artists and/or companies who are participating in the CINARS Biennale for the first time an opportunity to learn more about the nuts and bolts of international markets.
These companies receive a training session prior to the event, a registration badge, a space in the collective booth located in the exhibition hall, and one hour of coaching after the event.
Come meet these new professionals at the My First Biennale collective booth #229.
Project organized in partnership with DAM (Diversité artistique Montréal) and ELAN (English-Language Arts Network).
Project sponsored by La Caisse de la culture Desjardins
