Logos and visibility standards
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.
Written references and visibility
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.
CAM + Ville de Montréal
Organizations must use the logo 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. All organizations, collectives or artists that receive Conseil funding must use this logo except if the logo of the Ville de Montréal is already in the logo banner prepared by them. The positioning and size of the Conseil’s logo should reflect the significance of its financial support in relation to other public partners.
