Executive Director Montreal Arts Council

With each and every new iteration, Festival Quartiers Danses (FQD) manages to successfully showcase how vibrant dance really is, while building bridges between all involved. Inclusive of all trends and generations, it nurtures special relationships between artists and their work, and the people of Montréal.

A true incubator for talent, the FQD provides new artists with a much-needed platform to present their creations in the city’s various boroughs, in theaters or unexpected urban settings. Conseil des arts de Montréal applauds their approach, as our teams continually strive to amplify new voices.

Kudos to the entire team for this 20th Edition, and let us savour every breathtaking moment!
