May for MAI : Enrichening our collective futures together

A few months ago, I proudly accepted the role of president at MAI (Montréal, arts interculturels). Having benefited from MAI’s mentorship program earlier in my career, I sincerely believe in its role as an essential contributor to the lives of artists and to the cultural life of Montreal. MAI has been hit hard by the multiple closures of the past two years. But there is no need to despair because we know that our community is closely knit and that is why we are launching MAI’s first annual fundraising campaign!

MAI has been hit hard by the multiple closures of the past two years. But there is no need to despair because we know that our community is closely knit and that is why we are launching MAI’s first annual fundraising campaign!

In 2021, despite 72 weeks of closure, we provided more than 100 artists, companies and partners the opportunity to create and enrich our imaginations and worldviews. Thanks to your donations, we will be able to continue to host 66 artists in residency, present 26 new productions and exhibitions, and ensure continued community partnerships through our Alliance program. By giving to MAI, you are making it possible for artists to contribute to the collective imagination while playing an important social role.

Help us reach our goal of $10,000!
I support he MAI 

To kick off this first annual campaign, I am committed to matching the first $2,000 in donations. It is an honour to be involved with this significant organization in the cultural ecosystem, and I hope this gesture will encourage you to support it as well. Thank you very much, dear friends, for your commitment to artists and creation, and to the community.

Sincerely,
Manuel Mathieu
President of the Board of Directors – MAI (Montréal, arts interculturels) Multidisciplinary artist
