Hi Puces-POP-ers! We hope you have all been well and taking care! The Puces POP team is very excited to announce the artist applications for the Festival Edition of Puces POP are open until August 28th.
This year we face exceptional circumstances due to COVID-19, which is why the Puces POP team has decided to switch things up to ensure the health and safety of our artists and community members. In September, permitting provincial health regulations and recommendations (and weather!), Puces POP will be hosting a small open-air market at Parc St Viateur in conjunction with a virtual marketplace.
WHO SHOULD APPLY:
Visual artists, potters, ceramicists, foodies, jewelers, printmakers, toy-makers, fiber artists, designers, garment-makers…. We want to see what you’ve been creating in quarantine!
WHERE YOU SHOULD APPLY:
The virtual marketplace is ideal for artists who are immunocompromised, who live or are in close contact with any high-risk individuals, or who have had their stocks or production impacted due to COVID-19. These artists will be hosted on a virtual platform and have their products and work promoted on the POP Montreal website and through the Puces POP pages.
The open-air market at Parc St Viateur will have a different set of 20 vendors each day. We will have a handwashing station on-site for clients before entry, mandatory masking for clients and artists, as well as extra staff on-site to manage the number of visitors on-site and to ensure social distancing is being maintained.
