A visit to Place des Arts can provide a moving opportunity to witness the work of participants in the Adaptive Arts Program.
This program offers an introduction to the performing arts through workshops for individuals with functional limitations, allowing them to fully express themselves.
Performances open to everyone
Normally, at the conclusion of their training, people taking part in the Adaptive Arts Program generously invite the public to witness the fruits of their explorations in the friendly atmosphere of our public spaces with performances that are open to all.
Unfortunately, in-person performances are currently not permitted due to the pandemic. We are looking forward to a return to normal activities so that you can explore our program, which this year includes choral singing, creative dance, percussive music, and expressive interpretation.
To learn more about the training program, please see the Programme Formation Collectivités.
Monique-Lefebvre Prize, awarded by the AlterGo organization
In 2020, Place des Arts’ Adaptive Arts Program won the very first Monique-Lefebvre Prize, awarded by the AlterGo organization. To date, our program has allowed over 450 participants and 24 organizations to explore the performing arts through workshops and public performances.
We have always firmly believed that the performing arts can play an important role in revealing the potential inherent in us all. We sincerely thank the AlterGo organization for the prize and the Théâtre Aphasique for nominating us.
From the start, the program has also benefitted from the support of the Ministère de la Culture et des Communications.
