The first edition of « Aire Commune » was held in August 2017 and lasted one month. The concept of this pilot project impressed more than 10,000 people last year, that is why « Aire Commune » is back in 2018. With its previous success, the creators of this project have decided this year to extend the period of the event.
But, what is « Aire Commune »?
The daily life of numerous workers is to use the Internet and mobile technologies. Innovations that allow them to work everywhere. Nevertheless, they are always looking for work places which foster collaboration and networking. Situated within the Mile-End neighborhood, « Aire Commune » is a free outdoor work space, unique in Montreal. Several studies show that working outdoor, in a friendly place, stimulates the mind, helps creativity and reduces stress. So, from May 17th 2018, these free installations allow the citizens to enjoy mild seasonal temperatures while fostering exchanges and coworking.
After a long and harsh winter, the aim of this project is to allow the Montreal population to gather in a place like a urban oasis. This year, the creators, all from the event sector, want to diversify the four month of occupation of the 5,000 square foot of this work place located at Gaspé Avenue. From May 17th to September 21st 2018, « Aire Commune » will propose different activities in order to satisfy everyone: conference days, various activities, « Happy Hour », shows..
Philippe Pelletier, one of the six co-founders of « Aire Commune », works in collaboration with the economic development department of Montreal to set up other coworking spaces in other strategic neighborhoods.
This summer, do not miss this ephemeral concept in order to work and share in a friendly and warm space, and thus make this second edition, a real success. So, you can count on our KEYS team being there. We will be happy to share some friendly moment.
