To mark its 25th anniversary, Diagramme teamed up with Les Prix de la danse de Montréal to establish the PRIX GESTIONNAIRE CULTUREL.
This new $5,000 prize offered by Diagramme recognizes the contributions of an outstanding cultural manager who has demonstrated a deep and steadfast commitment to a Montreal artist or cultural organization. The award, part of a three-year plan, will also be presented in 2017 in 2018. Candidates were proposed by Diagramme’s Board of Directors, composed of artists, cultural administrators and members of the business community.
For this anniversary edition, Gilles Savary was chosen as the first recipient of the 2016 PRIX GESTIONNAIRE CULTUREL.
In awarding this prize, Diagramme’s Board of Directors recognized a high-calibre cultural manager who has shown an unwavering commitment to a unique artist, providing invaluable support for the artistic projects of Paul-André Fortier.
The Board also wished to recognize Gilles Savary’s generosity, perseverance and exemplary involvement in the dance community—a model for young workers aspiring to a career in cultural management.
