Fondation de la Place des Arts
GRANDE PREMIÈRE DES FUTURES ÉTOILES
The Fondation created the annual FUTURE STARS GRAND PREMIERE benefit event in 2011 to contribute to the sustainability of the Société de la Place des Arts’ access-to-the-arts and artistic creation programs. The event, which brings together business people, philanthropists and arts lovers of all backgrounds, gives talented young artists a chance to perform on a prestigious stage.
Under the community component of the event, it is also an opportunity for young people aged 12 to 17 to attend the show at Place des Arts. From different backgrounds, it is, for some of them a first immersion in the cultural world of the arts. These are our generous donors who make it possible.
On June 7, 2016, the sixth edition of the Future Stars’ Grand Premiere fundraising event raised a record amount of more than $550,000 for the Fondation de la Place des Arts. Since it was first created, the event has raised close to $2 M for the Fondation. Each event has taken place under the artistic direction of a high-profile figure, such as Gregory Charles, Alain Lefebvre, Nathalie Choquette, Maestro Jean-François Rivest, Christopher Hall and Angèle Dubeau.
The Rentrée Nocturne is an annual event organized by the Fondation de la Place des Arts’ Young Patrons Committee to raise awareness of the Fondation’s mission among young professionals, encourage them to contribute to the development of the performing arts and help provide greater accessibility to the arts to the public.
The 7th edition of this event, which attracted hundreds of young professionals, was held on November 11th, 2016, on the stage of Théâtre Maisonneuve of Place des Arts. This year, Rentrée Nocturne enabled the Fondation to raise net profits over $25,000 which will be used to support Place des Arts’ Access-to-the-Performing-Arts programs.
Through this event—one of the Montreal’s largest gatherings of 25- to 40-year-old professionals supporting the arts—the Young Patrons Committee has raised to date over $265,000 for the Fondation de la Place des Arts.
