[UN]PROMPTU is a not-for-profit collective of artists, based in Montréal, committed to helping emerging artists to receive recognition for their work. Specifically, the collective is focused on filling in the lack of support for the artistic community regarding upcoming undergraduate artists. Challenging obstacles such as securing exhibition spaces, and promoting a community mentality that confronts institutional market-based control within the art world - for example, the gallery and auction systems. Additionally, the collective is interested in offering opportunities for unrecognized voices through knowledge-sharing workshops, artist talks, essays, and digital exhibitions. [UN]PROMPTU is dedicated to fostering a community of artists and building a space where creative minds can flourish.
