Rewarding the contribution of artists and cultural organizations to communities
Les Prix Les Arts et la Ville aim to encourage the cultural vitality of communities and promote good practices in this area. They express recognition of the commitment of communities' vital forces to make culture a vector of sustainable development. They contribute to the realization of cultural projects that play an active role in the continuous improvement of citizens' quality of life in Quebec.
"The unprecedented and destabilizing period we are going through is more than ever an opportunity to remind ourselves of the importance of promoting cultural initiatives that have an impact on the quality of life in our communities." says Christian Sénéchal, Director General of Les Arts et la Ville. Several artists and circus companies have launched cultural initiatives to brighten the life of their local communities in the year 2020. Would you like to promote your project and get recognition for your achievement? You have until noon on March 12 to submit your application for the Artist in the Community Award or the Andrée-Daigle Citizen of Culture Award!
The new winning projects will be announced during the Forum 2021 of the Les Arts et la Ville network, presented from Trois-Rivières in digital format on June 2, 3 and 4. Video clips of each winning project will be broadcast on the Web and on social networks. They will also be accessible to all registered Forum participants via the event's portal, for the duration of the event and for up to one month thereafter.
