About Notre Dame des Arts
Notre-Dame-des-Arts is a charitable organization based in the Montreal neighbourhood of Notre-dame-de-Grace, and is dedicated to supporting arts and culture in our community. We are a group of residents brought together by a shared love for NDG, and the shared goals of helping our artists thrive, and helping our residents gain access to more artistic programming. We founded Notre-Dame-des-Arts to help strengthen connections between artists and art collectives within the neighbourhood, to provide a platform to help promote and raise funds for local events and art projects, and to offer training opportunities for artists to develop their skills. Ours is a neighbourhood brimming with talent and cultural projects, including; Off The Wall Film Festival, NDG Arts Week, Porchfest, NDG Art Hive, and many others. We want to ensure these projects—and others like them—thrive by acting as promoter of local arts, and as a community hub for artists and groups that wish to more effectively fundraise and share skills and resources. We hope you join us in our mission to help champion the arts the NDG!
Currently, we are in the process of securing funds for future projects, and are working hard to raise awareness about not only our organization, but also artists living or working in NDG. We host a monthly arts evening, “First Thursdays” giving artists the opportunity to share current projects they are working, partake in lively discussions, and make new connections in the NDG arts community.
