Proudly wasting time and money since 1993, Sid Lee Collective is a creative incubator that helps fund, produce and exhibit passion projects of fearless, global artisans. No matter the day job, we believe everyone benefits from pursuing collaborative creative projects you love. That’s why everyone at Sid Lee gets up to 10% of their time to make passion projects happen.


Sid Lee Collective Blog is devoted to sharing our collaborations, stories of inspiring creatives, and community events too. Content and creative direction comes from the Sid Lee ateliers in Montreal, Toronto, Paris, LA and NYC.


If you have a collaboration in mind or a story that should be told, drop us a line.

Sid Lee Collective is also an active member of C2 Montréal, the largest innovation conference in the world.
