Annual fundraising activity

September 7, 2012 - September 8, 2012

Montreal interdisciplinary art centre, DARE-DARE, is pleased to invite you to its latest fundraising activity: PASSEPORT DARE-DARE.

This original fundraiser consists of an annual public art event. PASSEPORT DARE-DARE offers you the opportunity to see the Quartier des spectacles with a fresh eye, meet 15 emerging contemporary artists and acquire a limited edition numbered collectors piece, on top of granting you access to areas normally closed to the public.

Saturday September 8, 12:00 – 5:00 p.m. : 15 artists await you for a fun relay race. They will be stationed in various places within the Quartier des spectacles, ready to meet and offer you an original work created specifically for the occasion.

Your itinerary will consist of 15 stops and you'll have five hours to get your passport stamped by each artist who has designed a unique stamp for the occasion. A launch party will be held the preceding night, Friday September 7, 8:00 p.m. – 1 a.m., at the Church of St. John the Evangelist Parish Hall (church with the red roof behind the Place des Arts). Come enjoy the festive atmosphere, have a glass, meet with artists, acquire a piece of art available that evening only and stand a chance to win several door prizes.

All you have to do to support our artist-run centre is buy the official PASSEPORT DARE-DARE for $25. All profits from the event will be reinvested in 2012-2013 programming activities.
