Our sincere thanks for your generous support!
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.
SUPPORT THE CREATIONS OF TOMORROW!
The Donnez Dansez campaign is a fundraiser by Tangente and Agora de la danse, which are joining forces to better support both new and established artists, and assist them in their work and future development. All donations go directly toward supporting artists and their creations.
Why donate to Donnez Dansez?
Because you want to:
- encourage the creation of the choreographic works of tomorrow
- show your love of creation and contribute to the vitality of contemporary dance in Québec
- provide artists and their collaborators with optimal conditions for creation by giving them time in the performance space and access to specialized resources and equipment
- promote contemporary dance in Montréal
- introduce the youth to this essential art through workshops for non-dancers in primary and secondary schools
There is no such thing as a small donation!
Because you can make a difference!

FUNDRAISING GALA: FEMMES DE CRÉATION
MARCH 8, 2023 – 8PM
COCKTAIL DINNER + PERFORMANCES
Let’s celebrate women’s contribution to contemporary creation!
Once again, Agora de la danse and Tangente join forces to put together a vibrant and inspiring event. The evening will honor women’s creativity and the exceptional accomplishment of a figurehead of dance in Québec: Margie Gillis.
All proceeds will go to contemporary dance creators and to Dance Against Violence, a program that helps women who are victims of domestic violence regain control of their bodies through dance.
This cocktail will feature two performances: the grand premiere of OLD, the last full length solo evening of the legendary Margie Gillis; as well as an exclusive look at the latest virtual reality project KOROS. Come get swept up in the heart of contemporary creation by purchasing your tickets here:
You can’t come but still want to support us?
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, Caisse Desjardins de la Culture, and La Ruche and received the Prix Ardi in 2017. The program offers training through a conference and 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 Desjardins de la Culture; and Renaud Legoux, professor at HEC Montréal. The Conseil des arts de Montréal adds $500 and Caisse Desjardins de la Culture adds $375 to the first $1000 the artists raise.
