Grants for artists representing cultural diversity
Thanks to Vivacité Montréal, the joint initiative of three arts councils (the CAM, CALQ and CCA) and the Conférence régionale des élus (CRÉ), immigrant and visible minority artists and writers can carry out personal projects involving research, creation, production, outreach and advanced training, no matter what their discipline. This financial assistance encourages artistic expression by Montrealers, as well as promotes cultural diversity.
In 2012–2013, 26 artists and writers, all younger than 35, were awarded a grant. Established in 2007, this initiative—an exceptional means of benefiting from the creative contributions of everyone—has become a true asset for our cultural metropolis.
