Letter from the Executive Director, May 2022

Banner for Letter from the Director

Happy spring everyone!

There is such excitement in the air with so many live events and gatherings scheduled, it is time to put on our best and brightest outfit, leave the house (I know – but you can do it) and enjoy some amazing Quebec culture.    There is good news for all those who have worked so tirelessly over the last couple of years to keep the Quebec arts and culture scene alive. The Quebec government has stepped up and confirmed funding to keep the arts community alive and thriving both in the 2022 / 2023 budget and in a separate three-year plan worth 225$ million designed to help the community rebuild and thrive.

You can find a translated break down and assessment of the budget done by Culture Montreal here, and the plan for the $225 million can be found here (we are working on translating this so keep an eye on our website).

This funding is great news but we know it can be a bit daunting to navigate the programs and websites, don’t get overwhelmed.  Remember we have our amazing team at Quebec Relations to help you navigate the funding system for the arts in Quebec. You can even book a one-on-one consultation with an expert – learn more here.

See you soon!

Vanessa Herrick
Executive Director
