Calling everyone to participate in the cultural development of our territory
In addition to calls for projects, the MRC de Bonaventure is also working on other cultural projects, which it will carry out itself, or which it will develop in partnership with various organizations or individuals.
We are keenly interested in working in collaboration with the cultural community and the population. You can contribute in several ways to the process, for example by participating in the various committees, by becoming a leader of an action, by committing yourself as a volunteer or simply by sharing your ideas.
Individuals and organizations interested in taking part in the cultural development of the territory are invited to consult our cultural policy as well as our cultural action plan and to contact Natalie Martin, cultural development officer at the MRC de Bonaventure, at firstname.lastname@example.org or at the following number: 418 752-1492
