A word from our President
“As an artist, I know that we are bound to experience ups and downs over the course of our career, which can be overwhelming at times. For some, the lows can affect them both professionally and personally. Whether it’s a prolonged period without a work contract, an injury or a personal illness, no artist is immune to difficult times.
For several years now, the Foundation has garnered strength by surrounding itself with an increasingly solid and diversified network. Thanks to this united community, projects have been launched, activities carried out and friendships formed. We look forward to continuing on this path, joined by anyone who’s committed to the well-being of local artists.
I sometimes compare artists to entrepreneurs, since like them, we do not have a social safety net when unemployed. So, if one day we find ourselves needing help, I am proud that the Foundation can offer its support. It is this feeling of mutual aid that inspires me and pushes me to get involved as President of the Foundation, and I hope it will also motivate the entire artistic community of Quebec to pay it forward.”
