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.
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.
The Adaptive Arts Program is made possible through the financial support of the Fondation de la Place des Arts and its partners, the Sandra and Alain Bouchard Foundation and the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec. Make your donation today!
From the start, the program has also benefitted from the support of the Ministère de la Culture et des Communications.
