The Ville de Montréal’s Bureau du design is delighted to mark Phyllis Lambert’s 90th birthday by inaugurating the ninth edition of the grant established in her name. The grant is now awarded every two years. The 2017 Phyllis Lambert Grant coincides with Montreal’s 375th anniversary celebrations, which, among other things, will highlight the creativity of designers and architects. If you are a young Montreal designer with an interest in and passion for the city, now is your time to shine in this cultural metropolis where anything is possible!
The professional development project enables the recipient to explore a theme focusing on the city. It may be in the form of a work internship, participation in a design competition, workshop, symposium or any other activity relevant to the advancement of a nascent design career. The selected project must be undertaken in collaboration with one or more of the cities in the UNESCO Creative Cities Network, which includes Cities of Crafts & Folk Art, Design, Film, Gastronomy, Literature, Media Arts and Music.
