POP Symposium at POP MONTREAL 20TH ANNIVERSARY! SEPTEMBER 22 – 26, 2021

This year's POP Symposium aims to envision a post-pandemic future for the music industry and the performing arts at large and will move between with big ideas, like how to create socially ethical arts industries, to the specifics, like how did anyone successfully release music without touring last year?

This year’s POP Symposium aims to envision a post-pandemic future for the music industry and the performing arts at large and will move between with big ideas, like how to create socially ethical arts industries, to the specifics, like how did anyone successfully release music without touring last year?

Along with many practical panels on artist development, Symposium will also be exploring ideas around liminality. Can lectures look like performances? Can histories be written through art? How can artists embody anti-gentrification in their practices?

Overall, we are excited for another hybrid edition of POP Symposium and we hope our audiences both at home and in the beautiful Rialto Hall will find a hopeful space for learning and sharing knowledge.
