Message from Nathalie Maillé
The cultural community has been quietly regaining momentum over the past month, with venues back to maximum capacity. With warmer weather and more sunshine on the way, the gloom that has been surrounding us is slowly clearing, making way for brighter days ahead, and it feels great!

Another sign that life is returning to normal is the exciting news that we shared a few weeks ago. The 36th Grand Prix, the signature event of the Conseil des arts de Montréal, will take place in person! It was not easy to select 10 outstanding initiatives that were launched last year. However, our finalists stood out due to their inspiring approaches, innovation and close ties to their communities—values that the Conseil des arts de Montréal holds dear.

I am personally inviting you to participate in this flagship event, hosted by the incomparable Marc Labrèche on April 14 at noon, and vote for your favourite finalist, if you have not already done so.

Celebrating Montréal’s creativity
With Marc Labrèche hosting the event, this long-awaited homecoming for the cultural, business and municipal worlds is sure to be vibrant, inspiring and full of laughs.

Join us to pay tribute to and rally around the entire Montréal arts community, especially the 10 finalists who have been recognized by their peers.
Book your spot now!
