Agora de la danse’s Creation Fund
The matter of financing is often crucial to artists. Agora’s answer was to establish solid ties with the business world and to steadily set up a creation fund with the help of patrons, individual supporters and enterprises. Florence Junca-Adenot, chairman of Agora’s board of directors and recipient of the prix Arts-Affaires in 2007, was the great instigator of this project more than 20 years ago. Contributing to Agora de la danse’s Creation Fund results in the encouragement of talent, originality and the vitality of artists in the dance community, thus improving their quality of life.
We wholeheartedly thank all the donors, partners, artists and sponsors who made our fundraising gala on April 17 a resounding success! This fundraising event, held under the honorary chairmanship of Pierre-L. Baribeau, Esq., partner lawyer at Lavery, met and even exceeded its targets through the generous contribution of the Boscoville Foundation as well as all of our partners.
We raised a total of $96,760, which are being invested in furthering our mission to propel Quebec artists. The funds will also help us provide continued support to the Dance Against Violence project overseen by Montréal Danse.
