Lunch and Learn | The ecological transition at the Maison de la culture de Pointes-aux-Trembles

with Julie Jacob, cultural agent

November 16 at 12:00pm (75 minutes)
free virtual event in French

The government’s new expectations regarding eco-responsibility are leading to new thinking in the cultural sector.  What does the concept of ecoresponsibility entail for arts and cultural organizations that do not operate as presenters? How can we improve our day-to-day actions for a better tomorrow? 

To explore these questions, we welcome Julie Jacob, cultural agent at the Maison de la culture de Pointe-aux-Trembles, to discover the actions that they have carried out in favor of sustainable development. Among the 1st cohort of presenters to obtain the certification of Scène écoresponsable, the Maison de la culture de Pointe-aux-Trembles has implemented various initiatives to become a model of eco-responsibility. In this talk, we’ll explore how ecological transition can be thought through and implemented.

The Essentials | Complying with Law 25

with Bruno Ménard, president and founder of SIX0CINQ

November 30 at 1:30pm (75 minutes)
virtual event in French (tickets $0-$10)

Since September 22, 2023, the provisions of Law 25 for protecting personal information have taken effect. What does this mean for artistic organizations and artists? How should we manage the data we hold? How does consent work in the digital context? What changes need to be made to comply with the law?

Drawing on his legal expertise and experience in accompanying companies, our guest speaker Bruno Ménard, will present the main aspects of Law 25, its concrete impacts on artistic organizations and artists in the milieu, and the actions they need to take. This event is an essential to address the uncertainty that persists on this subject.
