RQD represents dance at CAM’s cultural real estate funding conference
On May 18, at the Atrium of the Maison du Conseil des arts de Montréal, the RQD represented dance before a panel of representatives of the city of Montreal at a conference on the financing of cultural real estate projects of the Conseil des arts de Montréal (CAM).
The purpose of the event was to benefit from the sharing of experiences of actors of different profiles who have set up such projects, the challenges they have faced and the levers inherent to these approaches, but also from the funders of cultural capital.
During the panel, the RQD advocated for a tool to be created by the city of Montreal that would make available to our community vacant spaces in the city that our artists and companies could use until they are rented. The city was interested in the idea and invited us to meetings to follow the discussion.
On the same day, CAM launched its brand new guide entitled Financing a Cultural Real Estate Project: A Guide for the Montreal Arts Community, (French only), which aims to respond to the needs of the arts community based on the Council’s consultations. The guide is intended for cultural real estate project holders: cultural organizations, artists’ collectives, technical resource groups, and any other organization wishing to develop this type of project in Montreal.
