Creative Organizations

Méduse is made up of ten artistic and cultural organizations dedicated to artistic research, production, and presentation. Member organizations work both independently and together, each contributing to the global reputation of Quebec culture and to international artistic exchanges. The cooperative’s production spaces serve a broad community, hosting and presenting hundreds of artists from Quebec and beyond every year for workshop stays and short and long term creative residencies. Member organizations put on over 300 public activities, enjoy the support of several thousand members, and reach an estimated audience of 50,000 people every year.
