MONTREAL, Aug. 9, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - The Fondation de la Place des Arts' Young Patrons will host the seventh annual La Rentrée Nocturne at 9 p.m. on Friday, November 11, 2016, in an exclusive on-stage celebration at the Maisonneuve Theater. All proceeds from the evening will support the mission of the Fondation de la Place des Arts and contribute to implementing activities and projects promoting access to arts to a larger public. La Rentrée Nocturne, which brings together nearly 500 young professionals aged between 25 and 40 annually, has allowed for more than $ 240,000 to be donated to the Fondation de la Place des Arts.
"Arts and culture play a vital role in mental and cultural development, and this is especially true for young people. As a community, it is critical to make them accessible to all" says Stephanie Liverani, co-spokesperson of the event and Founder of professional community Crew. "I can't imagine a more fun way to support this great cause and I look forward to being a part of this fantastic event."
In collaboration with MASSIVart, La Rentrée Nocturne is proud to present a unique on-stage immersive experience that will bring Montreal's prominent underground art culture to center stage. The night will feature Dj performances, live street art, a professional silkscreen station, and other artistic and musical surprises. Guests will also have the opportunity to partake in an impressive silent auction featuring some of the most coveted prizes Montreal has to offer.
"Montreal is such an artistically impressive city; I am happy to join The Fondation de la Place des Arts' Young Patrons in showcasing all that we have to offer," says Christian Belair, event co-spokesperson and Founder at Credo. "As a young professional myself, I think it is essential to support the arts as we are the next generation of difference makers."
La Rentrée Nocturne is the largest gathering of young professionals supporting arts in Montreal.
