Surplace Media

Surplace is a social enterprise in Montreal that blends together three things.

 

• A media coop that offers resources to creatives and doers

• A media outlet that produces content, in our own voice.

• A creative agency that works with clients, so we can pay our bills.

 

We live for the moments of discovering a person’s story, connecting with them as a collaborator, and making a creative work to share with our audience.
