Logos and visibility standards

Logos and written references for organizations (promotional tools)


The Conseil des arts de Montréal logo must be included and/or the Conseil must be referred to in writing in the supported artist’s, organization’s or collective’s communications.

Organizations must use the logo below, which includes the logo of the Ville de Montréal, the Conseil’s principal partner. This logo is designed to better reflect the city’s contribution. Arts organizations that receive operating grants from the Conseil must mention this funding in their information, promotional, or advertising material, both printed and electronic, in acknowledgement of the use of public funds for arts activities. Organizations that receive project grants must only reference the Conseil’s contribution for the duration of the project. All organizations that receive Conseil funding must use this new logo and remove all previous versions.
