In the summer of 2015, the Council reached out to many of the stakeholders in the artistic and cultural domains, and together they created the Arts and Culture Table. The creation of the Table was an inclusive process, stemming from the tremendous volume of actions that were happening in the neighborhood The Table is made up of both organisations and residents. Uniquely, the Table has a particularly large number of residents and informal groups on the Table, reflecting the wide range of artistically-minded people in NDG. The Table currently has a simple mandate: to promote the arts and celebrate the cultures of Notre-Dame-de-Grâce. To date the Council has supported the members of the table through collaboration, facilitation, training, brainstorming, as well as grant writing and providing letters of support.

The Arts & Culture Table supported a variety of resident-led projects in their bid for funding for Montréal’s 375th and Canada’s 150th celebrations in 2017. This process demonstrated the depth of NDGs vibrant and creative artistic community and helped build the incredibly collaborative culture of the local arts community.
In its first 2 year, the Table has successfully:
Mobilised more than 30 different organisations, groups, and active residents.
Submitted a collective application to the MTL375 funding containing projects from 8 organisations and individuals. The NDG Community Council would be the fiduciary for these projects. Two of the projects within the collective submission for MTL375 have been approved so far
Supported several groups who were able to apply for MTL375 funding on their own. The theme of MTL375 is building bridges and the Table succeeded in doing just that.
The Arts & Culture table is proud to be the fiduciary for projects such as Porchfest, the NDG ArtHive, as well as help resident initiatives take form such as: Les Ateliers d'histoire and Piste CyclArt
Hosted 2 dynamic and fun brainstorming sessions led by Percolab and the Art Hive Network that resulted in hundreds of ideas to make for one great and lively neighborhood.
