act·art·mgt is a management agency dedicated to supporting innovative musicians. Our aim is to empower artists who push boundaries and create distinctive music. We believe in developing strong community roots, removing barriers, and creating space for all artists, audiences, and dreamers.
    act·art·mgt focuses on investing in Canadian talent, forging new connections and networks, and expanding the Francophone presence within Canada's experimental music landscape. We offer sliding scale fees to ensure accessibility and remove financial barriers for artists seeking professional assistance. We are committed to researching, developing, and implementing alternative management models that are sustainable in the context of non-commercial and underserved music scenes.

Amélie Malissard has over fifteen years of experience managing projects, in the experimental music scenes, and beyond.  In recent years, she has worked with artists, festivals and venues in Canada.
