Cultural Management Award

In 2012 the Carmelle and Rémi Marcoux Chair in Arts Management launched an award to recognize the outstanding contribution of a cultural manager in developing a cultural organization or enterprise, an arts sector, a new market or a community.

This award promotes the role of cultural managers and honours their achievements in society by singling out an exceptional career in arts marketing and management. The Chair believes that cultural vitality is based not only on artists’ creativity but also on the vision and commitment of cultural managers, who, in the words of Patricia Pitcher, “build the bridges imagined by artists.”

The $5,000 award is presented during an annual ceremony. Any manager in the arts and cultural industries is eligible provided s/he has 15 years’ professional experience in Quebec or French Canada.
