YES, or Youth Employment Services Montréal is a charitable non-profit that provides English-language resources, tools, and strategies to improve employment and entrepreneurship opportunities across Quebec.
They will be hosting a series of pop-up art exhibitions and live music events in Montreal. After a difficult period of pandemic-related restrictions for creative entrepreneurs, select local artists are excited to showcase their work! Pop-up art exhibits will be held at a variety of venues over the next month and a half, including:
Sunday, August 7, 2022, 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM: Cardinal Brewing, 466 Rue Main, Hudson (QC)

These events are free and open to the public. Each pop-up exhibit will be unique, featuring a diverse mix of artwork and performances selected by a jury of leading Quebec artists. In addition, artwork and prints will be available for sale on-site, with all proceeds going to the artists.
The events were created not only to give a platform to some of the province’s leading emerging artists but also to coach the talents so they can better make a living doing what they love. The participating creatives, selected by a jury of local leaders in the arts and business community, received training in critical business skills like marketing and sales prior to the events.
