Artists have long been viewed as pioneers of gentrification, and yet contemporary studies also point to how artists themselves have been displaced as a consequence of the revalorisation of property. This talk presents the case of a gentrifying neighbourhood in Montreal, where artists have successfully fought to secure affordable studio space, and reflects on the lessons that this case suggests for a broader struggle against displacement.
