The Conseil des arts de Montréal invests $100,000 to foster emerging talent in Montréal-Nord, Rosemont–La Petite-Patrie, Saint-Laurent, and Verdun. A call for proposals goes out today

 

 

Montréal, October 3, 2019 – The Conseil des arts de Montréal is partnering with four boroughs in support of a $25,000 project in each sector. Through these partnerships, the Conseil hopes to foster the emerging talents of the arts community on the island to enhance the cultural development efforts in each of these boroughs.

 

Professional arts organizations and collectives in the boroughs of Montréal-Nord, Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie, Saint-Laurent, and Verdun are invited to submit their proposals for artistic projects between now and November 5, 2019. The borough of Rosemont–La Petite-Patrie will contribute an additional $10,000 toward the selected project.

These four boroughs will have the opportunity to host the creation of a work of art by an arts collective or organization on their territory by the end of 2020. An evaluation committee composed of arts professionals and representatives from the boroughs in question will make the selection. For more information on the program

This initiative was launched as part of the second component of the Entente triennale territoriale en lien avec la collectivité de l’Île de Montréal and is backed by the Conseil des arts de Montréal in collaboration with the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec and Culture Montréal.
