Sur Place Media is a Montreal non-profit whose mission is to equip creatives and freelancers with the tools they need to learn, play and grow. We offer affordable workshops, access to gear, professional opportunities, and community. Together, we want to create what we call People Media - a human-centered alternative to mass media and social media. We believe there’s a storyteller in everyone, and that with a little solidarity, we can make powerful creative projects come true, in an independent and innovative way.
Since 2017 (to June 2020), Sur Place has hosted over 60 workshops for close to 300 participants, completed 20 media contracts for local clients. In the wake of the COVID crisis, the need for creation and social connection was felt even more strongly by the community. In response we moved our workshops online and expanded our audience to the rest of Canada and beyond.
