Thanks to a contribution of $ 440,000 from the Government of Quebec, the Regroupement des festivals régional arts independents (REFRAIN) will be able to set up a centralized administrative service window that will reduce costs.
The whole project is valued at $ 700,000. It will bring together the marketing, promotion and accounting services of some 80 REFRAIN members.
“In Quebec, there is a wide variety of festivals and each of them deserves to be known. An initiative like that of REFRAIN will allow organizations of all sizes to come together, highlight Quebec talent and create jobs, indicates the Minister responsible for Regional Economic Development, Marie-Ève Proulx. This is all the more necessary with the pandemic, which makes this sector of activity more vulnerable. “
