The SMAQ is the most anticipated Quebec arts and crafts show of the year. It features over 215 seasoned artisans and emerging artists who help forge our collective identity and invigorate our economy. 

Our passionate spokesperson, Christian Bégin, is back for a 6th year in support of our talented professional artisans. He’ll be joined by Lolitta Dandoy, one of Quebec’s most influential fashion journalists and bloggers and one of Canada’s top fashion celebrities. She’ll be providing an urban, eco-responsible take on the exhibitors and their work. As Studio MA’s Fashion Host, she’ll be presenting interviews at the Studio MA alongside

The Pavillon des Saveurs will showcase quality products that are the pride of our regional producers, food artisans, and passionate chefs. The Architecture and Heritage Pavilion is where visitors can discover those specializing in heritage conservation and restoration, such as stone carvers and artisan blacksmiths. Heritage renovation projects differ from typical building renovations in that they require a specialized workforce to carry out substantial yet respectful repairs or rehabilitation work.

VIDÉOTRON and Studio Métiers d’art, a webcast that spotlights local creators, will be back to put a new spin on the art of fine crafting. It’s a unique chance to take part in creative encounters with artisans and a rare peek into their craft, techniques, stories, and even the fruits of their labour.

This year’s salon will also feature 3 exhibitions: De fil en papier, Marie-José Gustave invite, a tribute to Louise Lemieux Bérube and Winifred Nungak,  Kangirsuk-based fashion designer.
