For its 7th edition, the Chromatic festival broadens its scope: under the theme of the role of art in the business and entrepreneurial spheres, the festival opens for its first time the doors of Chromatic PRO, its professional branch.

Professionals, creators, and known creative figures from Toronto, Lyon, and Montreal will explore the numerous facets of the key question for this first edition, thus creating new partnerships and axes for collaboration between the three cities.

During three days, the public will be invited to reflect upon the different forms of creativity and their utility within an increasingly diverse and globalized economy. Dynamic anti-master classes, "versus" sessions between cities, artistic performances, interactive workshops and presentations of digital installations, the audience will be enticed to reimagine the bond between art and business.
