Future Stars’ Grand Premiere

Fondation de la Place des Arts' annual benefit event

The benefit event

For the past ten years, the Future Stars’ Grande Premiere has presented a unique show that raises funds to support outreach and education programs which create hundreds of meetings every year between diverse audiences and artists at Place des Arts. This event also allows the Fondation to introduce businesspeople, philanthropists, and art lovers to exceptionally talented young artists.

Community Outreach: Lighting a spark

Arts and culture are essential for our development and fulfillment as individuals, as a community and as a society. This is why, every year, more than 500 teenagers from less privileged backgrounds and newcomers are invited to attend the show free of charge. Since this initiative was created, over 2,000 people have taken part in this unique evening. For many of them, this event is a first immersion in the cultural world of the performing arts in Quebec.

2021 Edition

Enable the power of art

Over the past year, it has never been clearer that the arts and culture are important vectors of social cohesion and that they promote the development of individuals and communities for a more inclusive future.

We are proud to mention that the accessibility programs we fund were maintained this year and that, despite a hiatus in the performing arts, thousands of people continue to take part in them.

In this context, we have chosen to hold our annual fundraising event because it is thanks to the funds raised during this evening that we are able to continue our mission.
