Fondation de la Place des Arts
Art is powerful.
Art opens horizons, it is a door to discovery. It cultivates curiosity, nourishes the imagination, promotes diversity, inclusion and the development of individuals and communities. Because art has the power to change the world, the Fondation makes the living arts accessible to many audiences.
The Fondation de la Place des Arts is bringing together the community and the largest performing arts centre in Quebec and in Canada: Place des Arts by financially supporting L’Art en soi program. Since its creation in 2006, everyone's efforts and investment in raising public awareness and making arts accessible have borne fruit. To date, more than $2,250,000 has been devoted to a multitude of artistic and cultural activities.
The Fondation is particularly proud of the diversity of audiences who benefit from the activities it supports and which are divided into five different components: Activities for the General Public, Family Activities and Shows, Educational Program, Formation collectivité Program, and Support for New Works Program.
