5@9 Stamping Session

The Montreal-based artist run centre DARE-DARE, dedicated to the dissemination of contemporary, multidisciplinary artwork, is pleased to invite you to its annual fundraiser, PASSEPORT DARE-DARE.

PASSEPORT DARE-DARE is a fundraising activity that encourages collaboration between commercial and artistic communities within the visual art community. Blank booklets, “Passports”, special designed and hand printed for the occasion are sold at a pre-sale price of 20$, and 25$ the day of the event. Participants are then invited to wander around DARE-DARE's head office, through various commercial and artistic spaces, where they collect “stamps” from the artists.

PRE-SALE PASSPORTS: 20$ (purchased before May 24th)

REGULAR PRICE PASSPORTS: 25$ (purchased on May 25th)

PASSPORTS SOLD AFTER THE EVENT (including all artworks): 50$ (sold after May 25th)

For the 2013 edition, the event is divided into three separate blocks: two fundraising evenings prior to the main event, the PASSPORT itinerary on May 25th, and the monthly 5à9 evenings during the regular programming openings and finishings.

The fundraising evenings are meant to give opportunities to emerging artists studying in university (UQAM, Concordia), and self-taught street artists. In order to start this year's collection, three emerging artists, and two established artists have been selected to stamp their work during the fundraisers, a prelude of the work to come.

** PASSPORT DARE-DARE CONTINUES THROUGHOUT THE YEAR with stamps from each artist within this year's regular programming – follow us via our newsletter!

In order to integrate this year's programming into the event, all the artists showcased within the regular programming have made works of art, to be stamped during their 5à9 openings or finishings. Exact dates have not yet been determined.

The completed 2013 PASSPORT will be made available for 50$ at the end of the programming year, in March 2014.

This project is made possible through the generosity of our Main Sponsors:
