Save the date! On September 23, 2019, we will host a benefit auction.
Tangente and Agora de la danse call all art lovers, veteran and aspiring collectors, and members of the business and cultural communities to purchase artworks by established and emerging Québec artists.
Proceeds from this auction will be used to support contemporary dance artists who daringly explore and reinvent art. They will notably go towards ensuring better conditions for the creation and presentation of the artists’ work at Agora de la danse and Tangente.
By taking part in this benefit auction, you support the emergence and growth of local visual art creators.
It is with dreams of summer that Agora de la danse and Tangente invite you to a colourful fundraising gala. Come get a taste of the mysterious world of contemporary dance with our Tiki-themed party. To offer you a sparkling experience, a series of impromptu dances will bring to life the wonderful convertible spaces that make the Wilder building a unique facility in the country.
A night of warm support for contemporary dance artists presented at Tangente and Agora de la danse, and for Danse contre la violence, a program that helps victims of domestic violence reclaim their body through dance.

In recent years, members of the Tangente team, together with our many collaborators, have laced up their running shoes to help raise funds by participating in special athletic events linked to crowdfunding campaigns. Whether in support of our educational activities or to finance the Prix de la Danse de Montréal, these competitions are wonderful occasions to exercise, socialize and enjoy each other’s company, all for a good cause.
Half-marathon 2015: $2500 raised
Triathlon 2015: $2130 raised
Half-marathon 2013: $2658 raised
Each year since 2016, Tangente provides guidance and financial support for the creation of a crowdfunding campaign to a dozen artists who are part of its season. This innovative concept in the Montréal cultural industry is realized in partnership with the Conseil des arts de Montréal, Desjardins Caisse de la Culture and La Ruche, and received the Prix Ardi in 2017. The program offers a training through conference/workshops about fundraising, money management, and cultural marketing, given by Elsie Lefebvre, director of La Ruche Grand Montréal, Lucette Lamy, Wealth Management Advisor at Caisse de la Culture, and Renaud Legoux, professor at HEC Montréal. The Conseil des arts de Montréal adds $500 and Desjardins Caisse de la Culture adds $375 to the first $1000 the artists raise.
