Exhibits at the Centre for Sustainable Development

Art openings provide an excellent opportunity to organize thought-provoking events on top sustainable development issues.

Located in the heart of Montreal’s entertainment district, the Centre for Sustainable Development has been showcasing art exhibits since 2012, providing the only space exclusively dedicated to bringing together culture and sustainable development in the city. The Centre considers culture in general and art in particular to be fundamental pillars of sustainable development and its eight exhibits a year string together culture, art and knowledge.

The art exhibits at the Centre for Sustainable Development aim to...

  • Use art as a tool for raising awareness about top sustainable development issues
  • Broaden the Centre and its members’ scope by reaching new audiences in the artistic sector
  • Encourage the artistic community to participate in the public discussion on main sustainable development issues
  • Offer artists a space to showcase their work
  • Liven up the Centre’s Atrium
