Helping artists make a living at D'arts et de rêves
"Lyne Bessette, Member of Parliament (Brome–Missisquoi), announced $440,000 in funding for Sutton-based D'Arts et de rêves for its renovation and expansion of a portion of its building dedicated to housing artist residences. Ms. Bessette made the announcement on behalf of the Honourable Steven Guilbeault, Minister of Canadian Heritage.
Funded through the Canada Cultural Spaces Fund, this support will allow the organization to host artists in residence year-round in renovated and new spaces that comply with building standards and are accessible to people with mobility impairments.
This investment also addresses the lack of quality infrastructure in place for the creation and production of new circus-arts projects. The adaptation of creative spaces will meet the needs of visual artists involved in large-scale work."
