DARE-DARE (french word meaning precipitously, promptly, quickly) is an artist-run center dedicated to the diffusion of multidisciplinary art. It is a nomadic, modular and transient center currently located in the South West borough of Montreal. Its annual programming is divided into 4 components:
- Intervention : Artistic projects in public space or in contexts not traditionally dedicated to art.
- Critical space : Various initiatives of reflection and rigorous intellectual research oriented towards action.
- Public writings : Literary/poetic research broadcast on an outdoor billboard.
- Special projects : Projects, sometimes spontaneous, whose form is not linked to any other section.
Since 2004, through the DIS/LOCATION project, DARE-DARE has moved to different neighborhoods in Montreal, where it has been inked for several years. Its offices are currently located at the CÉDA, a popular education organization, and the HALTE, its mediation center in the Parc Ste-Cunégonde's park.
