Les EIM, are an organization founded in 2004 by Sylvie Teste and Mustapha Terki whose mandat is to support and develop a multidisciplinary, intergenerational, creative and social reality of the place of art in the city and in the life of the citizens.

They create contexts of presentation that privilege encounters between artists, places and the public where the viewer is invited to be active rather than just a consumer, and who touches him in his social and human dimension.


Les Escales Improbables de Montréal produce and create multidisciplinary projects and also present artists in Montreal (and elsewhere in Quebec) from all disciplines and from different countries for 16 years.


Between art, city and citizens, the EIMs highlight, at different times of the year, innovative and contemporary artistic experiences that reveal spaces and places in Montreal. This intimate and collective relationship arouses and privileges the interaction between the public and the artists. Installations, shows, performances, workshops and all forms of artistic devices, outdoors or indoors, nourish this link of proximity.
