Collide : special nightlife policy edition

Join us to learn how you can get involved in shaping Montreal’s nightlife policy through the city’s public consultation process, set to take place throughout March. Members of FANTOM, Studio ZX, and MTL 24/24 will be present to answer questions and share best practices to maximise our collective impact.

We urge everyone, especially those of you who aren’t already engaged as artists, organisers, or venue operators, to come out and get involved. This is our chance to rewrite the story for nightlife in Montreal.

In addition to the returning open-decks performances, speakers included Inobe Stanislaus of MTL24/24’s Night Council, Max Honigmann in affiliation with Resident Advisor, as well as a representative from CJE Centre-Ville.

Each shared an address with the audience on the topics ranging from resource and development opportunities for new and emerging artists and collectives, to ongoing research on nightlife in our city.  Amai Doucet of Studio ZX was MC.

Collide: Nightlife before dark

Collide is an all-evening event co-hosted by Studio ZX and FANTOM, intended to serve as a shared and open space for the many scenes that make up Montreal nightlife to meet, find common ground, and build lasting ties of solidarity—regardless of experience level or other barriers.

With members of FANTOM, Studio ZX, and MTL24/24’s Night Council present, our goal is for Collide to act as a bridge between Montreal’s nightlife communities and the organizations working to support and advocate for them.
