Message from RQD’s Executive Director
It has already been 3 weeks now that I have been meeting with people in the sector, with organizations, artists, allies in dance, government officials, and of course, you – the members. In a few days, I had the chance to meet with over 20 representatives and it has only just begun.
The RQD is an association that has the honour to represent the dance sector in Quebec and that mandate is no simple endeavour. That is the beauty of it though, isn’t it? The diversity of its members, the complexity of the issues, the differing realities of actors and regions are none but a few of the deep riches of our community. The interdependence that exists in our ecosystem offers us a web of defence strong enough to allow us to grow, build, advocate and keep moving forward, all awhile preserving what we have been able to accomplish so far.
In the following months, the RQD team will continue to meet with its members and all actors in dance. The RQD will travel across the province in order to get to know you better. It will continue to develop partnerships in order to ensure the continuous enrichment of dance in Quebec. We will also continue to support the development of new initiatives that make our sector one of the most avant-garde in the arts.
As a new season begins, we are living a return full of hope and new challenges that we will need to resolve together, in collectivity and solidarity. Make sure to reach out to the RQD to share your current experiences in these uncertain times of continuous transformation. It is the RQD’s role to support you and to mobilize the sector to find an effective solution.
We are impatiently and enthusiastically waiting to hear from and see you.
