A non-profit organization located in a former presbytery in the Plateau-Mont-Royal, Livart is a multidisciplinary art center that includes a gallery, artists’ studios, an art school, an event room and a boutique.

The Livart’s activities are guided by the desire to democratize art for all audiences. A place of experimentation, dissemination and mediation, it is an innovative space where art becomes a vector of socialization and sharing and where the creativity of children and adults come together.

Through its configuration and activities, the Livart encourages proximity between artists and the public by offering a dynamic and varied program of exhibitions, evenings and workshops. The different aspects of the Livart intertwine to form an environment conducive to enriching exchanges.
