The new ArtPontiac Board of Directors is set to work and is preparing for a 2021 season full of colours and nuances, which will blow your mind.

The past year has been full of challenges for the organization, and it is with great enthusiasm and determination that the Board and the committees are planning the season ahead. ArtPontiac’s communications manager, Geneviève Has, is proud of how the organization has been able to adapt and renew itself in 2020.

While the restrictions linked to the pandemic are still an integral part of our daily lives, it is necessary, more than ever, to carve out a prominent place for the arts in our collective and personal life. This is why the artPontiac Board of Directors has made it its mission this year to maintain normal activities, while adapting to public health requirements. In fact, the organization is always looking for instructors for new courses.

In 2021, Art Pontiac will once again offer courses, exhibitions, talks, and special activities. The organization also invites the public to become a member or even a volunteer.

For more information on the organization and new season activities, visit their website at artpontiac.com. The French interview with Geneviève Has is available here.
