Held concurrently with the 2018 World Cup games (June 14 - July 15, in Russia), WORLD CUP! will also host a series of artist talks during participatory soccer matches.

Le Mile End s’articule is a summer outdoor community arts festival, revolving this year around the theme of games, play, and sport! With the support of the Arrondissement du Plateau- Mont-Royal, this summer’s edition provides a schedule of activities over six weeks, and includes festivities in articule’s alley, in the courtyard of the Collège Français on Fairmount Avenue, and in local parks of Mile End. Playing with the concurrent exhibition at articule, WORLD CUP!, curated by Amber Berson, the festival presents creative and critical responses to the world of games and sport at the intersections of art and performance. Kicking around are concepts such as: competition, anthems, nationalism, play, the material culture of sports (including uniforms, costumes, and equipment), interactivity, the gender pay gap, team and fan dynamics, training, athleticism, collective consciousness, critical sports studies, and more! Le Mile End s’articule is committed to creative reuse and the reduction of waste in artistic practices, and aims to promote environmentally-friendly approaches through community involvement in our shared streets and parks.

Le Mile End s'articule is generously supported by Le Plateau-Mont-Royal.
