Join us for this two-part workshop that is designed to assist artists who are interested in applying for public art calls but have limited experience in this field. The workshop includes both theoretical and practical components, with a focus on developing participants' organizational skills and providing a concrete framework for their proposals based on real-life examples.

How can you participate? Join us in-person or online by registering for the Zoom Meeting or watching live on YouTube. 

To participate in the in-person portion of the workshop, please email Sandra Margolian, to reserve your spot. Spaces are limited.

Pascale Girardin

Since 1996, Pascale Girardin has been exploring the potential of clay, both as a referent and as a device within a broader sculptural framework. Her installations, performances and sculptures draw on her experience in crafts, design and visual arts to explore how skilling and materiality contribute to the development of theoretical discourse. 

Pascale Girardin holds a master's degree in visual and media arts from UQAM and is the recipient of several prizes and scholarships (Pierre-Pagé, François-Houdé, Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec and Canada Council for the Arts). Pascale has presided over numerous selection committees for MCCCF’s 1% program and has been awarded public art projects across the globe. In 2019, she completed an eight-storey long suspended sculpture entitled Contemplation located in the heart of Montreal's Four Seasons Hotel.
