PAY WHAT YOU CAN Excerpt of the film The refugees of the blue planet, by Hélène Choquette and Jean-Philippe Duval. Let’s think and talk with Chris Severson-Baker from the Pembina Institute and ATSA. ATSA is an organization founded in 1997 in Montreal by artists Pierre Allard and Annie Roy to create so-called urban interventions: installations, performances and realistic stagings bearing witness to the various social and environmental aberrations which preoccupy the two artists. Their works investigate and transform the urban landscape and restore the citizen’s place in the public realm, depicting it as a political space open to discussion and societal debates. ATSA promotes an open, active and responsible vision of artists as citizens contributing to the sustainable development of their society.
