M for Montreal and Mundial Montréal are thrilled to present the very first edition of the RADAR series. This series of showcases presented between March and May 2023 will be open to the general public as well as being punctuated by professional industry meetings. These monthly professional meetings, in the form of networking activities organized before the artist showcases, will allow the local industry to exchange and connect each month.
RADAR is made possible through the support of the SODEC Innovative Initiatives Program and will be presented twice a month at Le Ministère from March 28th to May 31, 2023.
These 25-minute showcases will allow upcoming talents to present to the Montreal public a condensed version of their best material, for the first time in some cases. These privileged moments will also facilitate the development of professional contacts for these artists. The 12 artists selected for these performances will also share the stage with more established artists on the local scene.
A total of 6 evenings will be presented by M for Montreal and Mundial Montréal between March 28th and May 31st. In collaboration with the Rendez-vous de L’ADISQ, each evening will be prefaced by a networking activity or a mentorship session.
The complete program will be unveiled on February 22nd. The pro events and showcases will be open to industry members for free. Tickets for concerts will also be available to the general public.
Participating artists will be selected following a call for applications that opens today. We invite all Quebec artists who are not currently affiliated with an established production company* to apply. Applications will then be reviewed by an internal selection committee.
