The inclusion of cultural diversity is fundamentally about equality – giving all artists access to the same resources and the same opportunities to gain recognition, develop their art, and contribute to society. Diversity in the arts is one of Conseil's key strategic orientations.


The Conseil des arts de Montréal is pleased to team up with the City of Montreal’s Prix d'excellence en arts visuels, in partnership with the Contemporary Art Galleries Association (AGAC), to confer the annual Cultural Diversity in Visual Arts Award.
