** Due to public health directives, our annual fundraising Improv Night has been postponed. We will communicate with you when the new date is set.
Once a year, The Artists’ Foundation is pleased to invite you to our annual fundraising Improv Night. Watch a fiery improv battle between two teams with ten celebrities from the business world. Led by a professional comedian, they will give it their all to dazzle the public!
Hats Off Tour
In the past months, due to public health directives, our Hats Off Tour has been postponed.
As part of the Hats Off Tour organized from March to September 2019, two drives took place last December, organized by the Jean-Carignan Fund with volunteers from the Guilde des musiciens et musiciennes du Québec. This tour with the Orchestre Métropolitain and the Orchestre symphonique de Longueuil raised $4,600 alone. Due to public health directives, the 2020 tour has been cancelled, which explains the decrease in revenue.
Every year for over 20 years now, the Artists’ Foundation and its loyal volunteers pay visit to senior artists who are members of Union des artistes. From mid-November to the end of December, we visit seniors in their homes and distribute gift bags. It is a great opportunity to bring comfort and share with those who live alone or with limited means.
Cogeco Media Excellence Scholarships
The Artists’ Foundation believes in the strength and vitality of youth. We support artists at the beginning of their careers by offering excellence scholarships to students in the arts.
Other Activties: Mentorly mentorship program
Aimed at emerging artists, this program gave 15 recipients the opportunity to interact with creators recognized in their field. With our partner Mentorly, we saw how these matches allowed incredible projects to forge ahead, and have created meaningful connections by improving the engagement, performance and general well-being of artists.
