Mission Lyon: a cultural cohort to disseminate Montréal art!

For the first time, the Conseil des arts de Montréal (CAM) and the Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montréal (CCMM) are teaming up to give two representatives from seven Montréal arts organizations a chance to take part in a strategic forum on France-Québec business relations during a trade mission to Lyon, France from November 12 to 15, 2018

Co-organized by Acclr – the CCMM’s expert international trade team – Entreprise du futur, and the Centre Jacques Cartier, the mission will also include many opportunities for personalized meetings; it’sa unique chance to forge lasting relationships with potential partners.

Working to enhance the prosperity of Montréal’s arts community, CAM is proud to support members of our culture sector and help Montréal art spread beyond our borders.

We hope the participants enjoy a mission full of memorable cultural exchanges and new opportunities for fruitful partnerships.

Orange Noyée
Orange Noyée is a theatre company that produces shows and performs in Canada and abroad. By exploring new collective writing forms and an intimate, almost documentary approach, Orange Noyée strives to let performers play a leading role in their own creations. To play around with established codes and blur the boundaries between emitter and receiver, anything can be said without restraint.

Quatuor Bozzini
Quatuor Bozzini is an original voice in new, experimental, and classical music. Their skew is radically contemporary, propelling the hyper-creative Montréal scene, and beyond. Not content to parlay received wisdom, the quartet cultivates an ethos of risk-taking, and boldly ventures off the beaten track. With rigorous qualitative criteria, they have nurtured a vastly diverse repertoire, unbiased by the currents of fashion.
