A busy autumn for L’Arsenal - 30 October 2009

Autumn is here, and the artistic directors at L’Arsenal have just come back from a promotional tour of the Gaspé. In collaboration with some of the most important regional presenters, the team at L’Arsenal had the opportunity to organize a mini-tour before the presentations of L’Arche in mid-November.

Meanwhile, in Montréal
This fall, some fifteen schools will have the chance to see L’Arche and The Carnival of the Animals at Montréal’s Place des Arts from October 27 to 30. In the span of one week, more than 2,000 young people will discover L’Arsenal’s work.

Celebrate biodiversity: for an innovative model
L’Arsenal is proud to be a partner along with the Programme de soutien à l’école montréalaise, the Biodome and GUEPE for the project Celebrate biodiversity. With this innovative program, 700 young Montrealers from less-privileged backgrounds will get the chance to use science and the arts to explore the many facets and issues surrounding the protection of biodiversity. Sponsored by the United Nations and the Canadian Commission for UNESCO, the project will culminate in January 2010 with the coordination of an evening for the launch of the International Year of Biodiversity, when the 700 young participants will attend a performance of L’Arche at the Salle Pierre-Mercure.

CAM on tour
Thanks to the support of the Conseil des arts de Montréal, L’Arche will be presented on November 1 and 6, 2009 at the Salle Pauline-Julien and the Salle Désilets. “Since 1983, Le Conseil des arts en tournée aims to promote and sustain the arts across the island of Montréal, while allowing artistic companies to broaden their outreach. For the residents of the different municipalities and boroughs, this is key to their access to culture. With this program, citizens can attend quality events in their own neighborhoods, without having to travel to downtown Montréal.”

This fall, with hearts full of hope and heads filled with ideas, the team at L’Arsenal wishes to thank all of its partners who contribute to the development and promotion of music!
