Quartier des spectacles Partnership

Created in 2003, the Quartier des spectacles Partnership is a not-for-profit organization that brings together some 60 members who are active on its territory. Its board is composed of representatives from the cultural, institutional, educational and business sectors, the city of Montreal as well as local residents. The Quartier des spectacles allows the key stakeholders on its territory to combine their efforts and act in concert. It is supported by the City of Montreal as well as diverse partners.

An ambitious mission

The mission of the Quartier des spectacles Partnership is to actively contribute, in collaboration with public authorities and various area stakeholders, to the development and promotion of the cultural value of the Quartier by integrating urban, touristic, social and economic considerations into every one of its actions.

During the first few years, the Partnership formed its vision for the area’s development, defined the visual identity and implemented the Quartier’s very first collective projects. Since the completion of the new public spaces in 2009, the Partnership has fulfilled a broader mission focused more on operational concerns. It now oversees the Quartier’s activities through cultural programming, the management of the public spaces and enhancement of the general cultural offering.

Its actions aim to:

  • enrich and preserve the Quartier’s cultural assets, notably those related to the performing arts and performance venues;
  • create a vibrant Quartier through the programming of cultural activities in addition to the existing offer;
  • manage the public spaces and specialized facilities used for cultural activities;
  • illuminate the Quartier des spectacles with artistic lighting;
  • promote and develop the Quartier des spectacles as the heart of Montreal, an international tourist destination.
