2023-2024 Fundraising Campaign

For 42 years, AQM has brought together puppetry artisans, creating a space for closeness and sharing where members can cultivate a sense of belonging and actively engage.

Thus, AQM develops and promotes the practice of this major and essential art through activities such as training sessions, conferences, symposiums, publications, and artist residencies.

It resides in the Maison internationale des arts de la marionnette (MIAM), which it co-founded with Casteliers.

In collaboration with the Portal of Puppetry Arts (created by l’Institut international de la marionnette in France), AQM is establishing a Canadian network aimed at enhancing the discoverability of artists and works. This digital platform ensures the preservation of a diverse heritage by fostering synergy among heritage institutions, creative artists, and research. It serves as a powerful tool for cultural mediation, propelling the indexing of puppetry on the web.

AQM is a section of UNIMA-Canada, the national center of the world’s oldest association of artists. From there, AQM participates in numerous national and international cooperation projects.

Your donations help support the vitality of this community, notably through AQM’s artist residency program at MIAM.

AQM extends gratitude to the Conseil des arts de Montréal for its fiscal sponsorship, enabling the accomplishment of its artistic activities.
