Amélie Masson-Labonté

Project Manager, Thinkwell Studio Montréal

Coming from the field of museology, she has at heart the experience of the public, the enhancement of natural and cultural diversity, the scientific rigor of the content, their educational significance and especially their artistic deployment. Amélie also specializes in cultural project management and is particularly committed to the creative process.

 

Prior to Thinkwell Studio Montréal,  Amélie joined Réalisations-Montréal in 2016 to work on the development of the company’s expansion and focus in museums. Her recent research assignments have led her to explore the history of Lachine, the Jean-Talon Market and Montréal’s Italian community, the Jewish community and other Montréal neighborhoods. Her deep conviction is that in any project, research can reveal unexpected treasures, capable of inspiring the most creative concepts.
