Winter has come, and we are proud to present: LUX MAGNA (the Great Light)! LUX MAGNA is a 4 day festival with a diverse array of local arts, culture, and music, as well as some out of town guests to warm our collective soul!
LUX MAGNA FESTIVAL is brought to you by a group of women and non-binary curators and artists with multidisciplinary backgrounds from the forefront of Montreal’s art scenes. It is brought together by a collective need to change the narrative of how arts events are made, and to shine a spotlight on the music, dance, spoken word, and visual arts made in the community right now!
The artists and events presented in this first edition will test boundaries, question the status quo, and send us to new and bold understandings of the sublime in the world around us.

Ora Cogan has just released her new album Crickets & joins us fresh off the road to host the Montreal Sessions every Tuesday from 3-5pm in December. Her music inhabits a place between psych folk & dream pop, but her taste in music is as unpredictable as the winter sea! This session will feature live performances, interviews and an excursion through the archives of witch-house, post-punk, electronica, archaic folk and experimental music. Expect obscurities of all sorts!
