Grants to Quebec nonprofit organizations in eligible regions to host internships for artists. The purpose of the program is to provide opportunities for diverse and immigrant artists to work with professional artists, refine skills, and create a network of contacts. Applicants must be located in Montréal.

DémART–Mtl is a measure that encourages established arts organizations to host artists and cultural workers with culturally diverse backgrounds who are either new arrivals or first-generation immigrants.

This program gives organizations and cooperatives an opportunity to work with this specific culturally diverse group, whose members are often already well-established, to build a win-win relationship. The project is created in partnership with the artist or cultural worker and provides work experience in the arts community so they can develop their practice, gain an understanding of the Montréal arts scene, and actively take part in the host organization’s activities while developing their professional career.

There are two types of paid work experience:

Component 1. Artistic: Organizations host professional artists and involve them in artistic activities. These artists (musicians, lighting technicians, performers, artistic directors, etc.) are given the opportunity to practise their art within established companies.

Component 2. Administrative: The organizations host cultural workers who provide assistance to the various departments (general or administrative, communications, production, market development, etc.). Participants may also be project managers and develop new areas of activity under the direction of a supervisor.

The following types of projects are eligible:

  • Research
  • Creation-production
  • Specialized or multidisciplinary dissemination
  • Publication of cultural magazines
  • Production of an event or festival
  • A museum
  • Service organization, association or alliance
