Come learn about Alliance, the MAI’s unique artist-support program (previously known as the mentorship program) in the company of the program coordinator, Pablo Rodriguez. This information session will cover the program’s structure, admissions criteria, key deadlines, and the various services offered. The program is open to candidates from all artistic fields.

Hosting 10-15 artists, collectives and companies per year, the Alliance artist support program offers participating artists with individual guidance and coordination support, in addition to providing special allocations that help remove barriers to their equal participation in the arts. This info session will help you better understand the program and explain how to prepare an application. The next application deadline is June 30, 2019.

MAI welcomes artistic approaches that are hybrid, rigorous and relevant in the intercultural context. We welcome proposals from visible and invisible minorities, including Deaf artists and artists with disabilities, members of the LGBTQQIP2SAA community, racialized and recently immigrated artists, and artists of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit descent.

This project is financed by the Government of Quebec and the City of Montreal as part of l’Entente sur le développement culturel de Montréal, and from the Canada Council for the Arts.
