The Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal has launched five new art installations, sensory experiences, and activities in the city centre, as part of its “I love working downtown” initiative.

Supported by the Ministere de l’Economie, de l’Innovation et de l’Energie, these projects aim to promote the area as an ideal place for work and business meetings.

Since March 2021, the chamber has been taking actions to increase traffic in downtown Montreal and motivate the stakeholders who help make it a vibrant place. These new projects are the most recent additions to their ré·CRÉATIONMTL program and will be installed in the area’s private and semi-private spaces. They are intended to entice colleagues, friends, and partners to enjoy time together during breaks in their workday.

The five installations—two of which are permanent—are joining nine previously unveiled projects, including the multimedia project DANS LE FLEUVE, as well as two additional permanent installations: the Ring, at the entrance to Esplanade PVM at Place Ville Marie; and the Generations of Greatness mural, outside the Bell Centre.

“Downtown Montreal is a true playground for culture, arts, entertainment, food, and architecture,” says Michel Leblanc, president and CEO of the Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal. “The revitalization of the area hinges on these industries that make us so proud. With this in mind, we want to create new synergies between art and business, so workers and visitors alike can enjoy innovative and original projects.”

The full program and more information on all 14 ré·CRÉATIONMTL projects can be found on the chamber’s website.
