There are two ways to become an active member:

  • Pay $1, attend one general assembly and work one four-hour volunteer shift
     

Active members benefit from professional workshops, reduced prices on multiples and rentals, and receive our monthly member newsletter. Active members are also entitled to participate on our permanent and ad hoc committees and serve on the board of directors. Thus, active members can gain professional experience on both administrative and artistic levels.

3. If I make a donation to articule, can you issue a tax receipt?
 

articule is a registered charity. When you make a gift to articule of $20 or more, we will issue you a tax receipt. Currently, the majority of ariticule’s support comes from government arts councils of Montreal, Quebec and Canada. articule’s objective is to diversify funding to gain autonomy and to develop new services for artists and their communities. This organizational development is comprised of a relocation project and is based on an economic solidarity model. Your gift will help us achieve this goal, while supporting strong, socially engaged artistic programming year-round, innovative, artistic collaborations with local community partner organizations and schools, and much more.
