Art and Craft Studios: Diagnosis and Action Plan for Montréal

Following concerns expressed during the 2002 Montréal summit, a diagnosis and action plan for artist's studios were completed in 2006. Since then, an action framework hab been adopted, based on three guiding principles: building on improvements made in sectors where artists are currently established, intregrating artists' studios into the city's urbain policies and strategies and cultural districts, and supporting artistic creation by stabilizing rents and ensuring the continued presence of artists, studios in core districts.
