The Conseil des arts de Montréal, in partnership with Théâtre ESPACE GO and in collaboration with the Théâtre de l’Affamée, Imago Theatre and the Femmes pour l’Équité en Théâtre movement, are pleased to announce the creation of the Jovette-Marchessault Award recognizing the outstanding work of women in theatre to help increase their visibility.

With a purse of twenty thousand dollars ($20,000), the annual Jovette-Marchessault Award will be presented on a rotating basis every three years to women occupying different artistic roles in theatre.

The 2019-2020 competition is aimed at directors.
The 2020-2021 competition wil be for designers and the 2021-2022 for playwrights (for original works or original artistic adaptations only).
