ATTENTION ALL ORGANIZATIONS AND GROUPS RECEIVING OPERATING GRANTS:
Please note that the 2016-17 Final Report is not available on ORORA, and that the paper version must therefore be completed. The 2017-18 Final Report will be available on ORORA in September.

For all information about this program, please contact the cultural advisor for your discipline.

New: apply online!

In order to improve services, simplify the application process, and reduce the amount of time, paper, and management resources needed to process them, the Conseil des arts de Montréal has created the ORORA portal for online applications to its various programs.

The Conseil has also reviewed its general funding program to make it more inclusive and reactive to the realities of Montréal’s arts community.

Go to www.artsmontreal.org/en/orora for more information about how to file your application. You will also find the various forms available to help prepare your application.
