Montreal Walks & talks

Flaneur Walks & Talks are guided explorations through urban settings with the theme of ART & CULTURE & WELLNESS.  Bringing people together to observe, explore, and create under the curiosity to learn and discover. As we wander, a conscious effort will be set to be mindful of our direct experience through our senses. Included, a exclusive visit into a working studio of a local artist, gaining a unique perspective into the Montreal’s creative scene


LE PLATEAU QUARTIER- Observe, Explore and Create.

The Le Plateau walk and talk is a intimate and authentic tour of one of North American’s most artsy, bohemian and cultural neighbourhoods. Stroll like a flaneur down the quaint and narrow streets, wandering off the beaten path into alley or green way. Pause for a moment to look around. Observing all the colourful outdoor stairways and Victorian architecture, to the stunning wall murals created by local and international talents. Let your senses awaken as you take in the smells of local bakeries, the sounds of music filtering out of the second floor apartment. Open your eyes wide to catch the textures, colours and shapes of Montreals urban sprawl.
