Join Never Apart

close

Never Apart is a non-profit organization in Montréal, Québec, Canada, determined to bring about social change and spiritual awareness through art, culture and music events.

Never Apart seeks to educate on equality, the environment and conscious living, while celebrating both established and emerging artists. The platform is geared towards igniting positive change and unity through culture — gatherings, music, art exhibitions, panel discussions, workshops and special events. If we can break down the separations in society and on our planet, if we can embrace our oneness, we can start something new. Never Apart was established in 2015.

The Building & Facilities

Nestled in the heart of the Mile-Ex neighborhood of Montreal, Never Apart features 12,000 square feet of gallery, music production and creative space. It houses a theatre for screenings, a versatile mezzanine that opens to a garden and saltwater pool for gatherings, an archive of 10,000 vinyl records, and both Sun and Moon Rooms. Home of the Never Apart non-profit, the Centre is ready for all forms of artistic collaboration to fulfill its mission of ending separation and igniting positive change and unity through culture.

The Neighbourhood

Mile-Ex is the eclectic blend of houses, galleries, factories, auto-body shops and restaurants woven between the Mile-End district and the culturally diverse Parc-Ex. Between Little Italy and Jean Talon Market to the east and Avenue du Parc to the west, Mile-Ex is home to Montreal’s edgiest arts and music scenes, hosting a network of venues and gathering places, to which Never Apart has joined as a hub for expression, elevation and transformation.

Land Acknowledgement

We would like to acknowledge that Never Apart is located on unceded Indigenous lands belonging to the Kanien’kehá:ka, Wendat and Haudenosaunee Nations (source: native-land.ca), who are the custodians of the lands and waters on which we gather. Tiohtiá:ke/Montreal is historically known as a gathering place for many First Nations. Today, it is home to a diverse population of Indigenous and other peoples. We respect the continued connections with the past, present and future in our ongoing relationships with Indigenous and other peoples within the Tiohtiá:ke/Montreal community, and are thankful that we are able to create, collaborate, play, and work here.
