C2MTL 12th edition
Canada's creative-business event
C2 Montréal meaningfully connects people and organizations from diverse backgrounds, fields and industries in order to drive development in all its forms. We believe that society is at the heart of business. Which is why we put people’s stories and perspectives at the centre of the conversation.
Combined lenses bring the world into sharper focus
When we combine different lenses, a new world takes shape.
Enough of prim and proper pitches, 180-degree turns and unidirectional ideas. This year, it’s your stories, your points of view that will be at the heart of our experiences. These combined perspectives will happen live as we launch new formats that feature participation, improvisation and interaction.
What you'll get
The uncharted realm of challenges we find ourselves in today is without precedence. Truth is multifaceted. Priorities are competing. The forces in motion are not linear, and neither is the way forward. Listen in on how the best of the best are navigating.
Labs are immersive and interactive workshops that give participants a chance to explore different themes in small groups while discovering an alternate view of the world. The perfect mix of experience, content and participation.
Optimistic, comedic and artistic interpretations of the world around us that elicit positive responses. From stand-up to experimental formats, these performances offer diverse perspectives with the power to provoke deep emotions.
Exploratory and multidimensional, let's take the conversation where you want it to go. Your burning questions are answered by our speakers and experts. These animated conversations will take us to unexpected places.
Conversations and experiences that will inspire change
C2 Montréal programming is an immersive journey into the issues that are top of mind today with an eye towards shaping tomorrow.
