Logo Espaces temps Espaces temps

We imagine, implement, and propel projects geared toward social and cultural innovation.

We like projects that step outside the ordinary. Every year, we imagine, implement, and participate in a dozen projects, generally in the role of consultants, project managers, or partners. We’re constantly on the lookout for projects that embody inclusiveness and diversity, elicit enthusiasm, and stoke curiosity.

Our expertise

Our strength lies in our ability to imagine complex projects and bring them to life, all the while mobilizing partners and gathering the necessary expertise. Our projects call on diverse skills: graphic design, art direction, illustration, communication, programming, information architecture, industrial design, architecture, urban planning, publishing, journalism, facilitating co-design workshops, property management, financing, market analysis – and many more.

Our economic model

Espaces temps is a non-profit social enterprise founded in Montreal in 2009. We work with municipalities, universities, cultural venues, and other organizations to help them imagine and implement innovative projects. We’re chiefly financed by this kind of consulting work, from which we draw a surplus that enables us in turn to finance autonomous initiatives bearing a social impact.
