INTERVENTION PLAN ESTABLISHED TO FIGHT AGAINST ILLEGAL GRAFFITI IN AN INNOVATIVE WAY.
With experience and passion, we are working in reducing illegal graffiti activities by establishing creative and emerging projects in order to promote its legal expression. Whether it's by the production of frescoes, the establishment of legal walls, activities and urban art competitions, the use of cultural mediation and so on, DC is the connection between the art, the people and the authorities. Since 2008, we are at the heart of several artistic productions established to embellish the urban landscape which form a real artistic heritage.
It has been demonstrated that a quick and constant removal of polluting tags is efficient. For this reason, Dose Culture works in two different ways. Firstly, the removal of illegal tags on urban properties, done by a professional technician using efficient and ecological products and high-tech equipment. Secondly, we want to accompany the people that are stuck with polluting graffitis. Therefore, Dose Culture wishes to share its experience with the community and bring its citizens and shopkeepers to join the fight against them.
CONSULTATION IN REDUCTION OF OCCASIONS
Our municipalities are very successful in establishing regulations and are able to counter the apparition of illegal graffitis for a short period of time by promoting their efforts to tame this issue. Nevertheless, the municipal authorities are constantly searching for ways to reduce its happening and obtain more permanent results, without exactly knowing how to connect with the graffiti culture. This is where Dose Culture comes in, as we provide them with concrete solutions which have been proven to be efficient since 2008. From the short-term tag to the permanent mural, all graffitis are not created equally.
ESTABLISH CULTURAL POLICIES
Thanks to our creative and multidisciplinary team, plus our erudite associates, Dose Culture stands out by its original ideas and its work method. Whether it's about urban art, the emerging culture or even the creation of large cultural events, Dose Culture volunteers as a social company that is able to work for a cultural programming with a wide range of demonstrations.
The photographic division is subdivided into two distinctive visions: the first section, "Services", includes a mobile photo booth with personalized backgrounds customized by our graffiti artists, depending on the genre of the event. We also provide with a photo service aimed more towards companies, institutions and organisations who wish to have a professional photographer attend their events or photograph their businesses and/or their team. The second section, which is a bit more artistic, offers aesthetic or community projects such as Help-Portrait or expositions of our frescoes.
EDUCATIONAL IMPROVISATION MOVEMENT
By taking charge of the Jeunesse Inter-Cité Improvisation League and gathering various actors of the organisation, Dose Culture has built a serious expertise in the art of improvisation. With non-stop activities in primary and secondary level schools, its own improv league MÉDIA and its collaboration with Roberto Sierra (ImproSierra), Dose Culture aims to establish a progressive rise of participants. The objective: encourage the youth to practice improv and help them develop their academic capacities and self-esteem by sharing the passion and knowledge of our experienced players.
As mentioned above, an improvisation team is available to provide with people the proper training for every genre. Whether it's for a corporate activity, a school or any other person interested in improv, our trainings take in consideration the personal experience of the participants and their goals.
Dose Culture considers events that highlight the importance of the pleasures of the table to be culturally important. Whether it's by an assembly aspired to discover and savour or simply to learn about the origins, gourmet programming is a must for a cultural organization.
Our team is open to any serious suggestion for new cultural projects. Thereby, by contacting Dose Culture, it is possible to work with anyone wishing to take part in the development ofa cultural concept of their choice.
Here is a list of the legal walls located in the South Shore of Montreal; a city by city index you can use to practice graffiti legally, with the participation of the municipalities. We encourage our cities to inform us of their legal walls if the locations are not mentioned on this list, at firstname.lastname@example.org
For walls outside of the South Shore, you can consult the index of the Boutique Le Sino by clicking here.
LONGUEUIL | Bassin Julien-Lord, "Dog Park" (Jacques-Cartier Blvd West, Longueuil)
Located in the Old-Longueuil borough, this concrete wall offers more than enough space to give the painters the freedom to let their imagination flow. The vast field and walls, whether the ones near the garage or the ones on top of the hill, are completely legal.
Often, Dose Culture organizes painting days with the team of artists.
BROSSARD | Poly-Arena Site (3055, Rome Blvd, Brossard)
This location offers many legal walls, which are metal panels with absorbing technology. This is a very interesting place to practice graffiti, not only because of its location but also because the panels are placed in forms of islets, giving it a more complete and artistic feel.
MÉDIA associated itself with Roberto Sierra, an professional improvisation player, in order to train other players that are rising in the regular league. This way, our players are constantly accompanied by the one who created ImproSierra, a well-known improv company that specializes in improv training.
Moreover, MÉDIA also offers training services:
CLIENTS OF MÉDIA
