The Montreal Arts Council (CAM) on tour has resumed service in Montreal boroughs and related cities, offering more than 80 artistic projects across the island.
In all, 481 performances of 81 artistic projects will come alive this year in the Maisons de la culture, performance halls, libraries, churches, as well as markets, alleys and parks. In this way, the Council wants to meet new audiences and make art accessible.
Circus arts, street arts, digital arts, visual arts, cinema, dance, literature, music, theater and non-disciplinary artistic practices are planned for the cultural season running until June 30, 2023.
The CAM granted $1,914,000 to the 52 participating artistic organizations and 23 collectives (or visual artists).
The latter were selected on the basis of a call for applications launched last February for the 2022-2023 program and on the basis of their creativity, professionalism and innovation. A second call for applications will be launched on September 15 for the 2023-2424 program.
The Maisons de la culture de Montréal and the Association of Cultural Diffusers of the Island of Montreal (ADICÎM) are partners of the CAM in this project.
