Artsida8 Call for Submissions


Montreal, QC – Artsida, AIDS Community Care Montreal’s signature art auction fundraiser, invites visual artists to submit artworks for its much-anticipated eighth edition at Salon Urbain, Places des Arts on March 11th. Artsida is presented by TD Bank and all funds raised go towards ACCM’s support services for people living with HIV, as well as its sexual health programming for youth and at-risk communities.

Last year’s edition of Artsida drew over 400 attendees and raised $126,000 for ACCM’s programs and services. Artsida7 featured 60 works by 73 artists including Kent Monkman, Daniel Barkley, Zilon, Aicia Lorente, and Johan Jansson.

“Artsida8 is our opportunity to thank thought-provoking artists that understand the importance of giving back to the communities of Montreal. After 30 years of life-changing services, ACCM is grateful for all the artist support it has received over the years.’’ 
– Jeansil Bruyère, ACCM Executive Director
