LEAVE YOUR MARK IN THE HEART OF LE DIAMANT
FUNDING CAMPAIGN - SPONSOR A SEAT
Our exclusive seat campaign is an opportunity for you to celebrate the inauguration of Le Diamant and help bring this arts centre to life in the heart of Quebec City. Be one of the first to make a mark on this symbolic space by engraving your name, your company’s name, or the name of a loved one on a seat in the auditorium!
Participating in the seat campaign is a wonderful way to show your support of the arts and help make the unique and unifying experience of the performing arts accessible to all.
HELP MAKE CULTURAL EXPERIENCES AVAILABLE TO ALL
My belief in culture has always guided my actions and commitments. Today, thanks to your generosity, everyone from frequent spectators to families with little experience with the performing arts will have their place in this new cultural space dedicated to discovery and bringing people together.

WELCOMING THE WORLD TO LE DIAMANT
After having travelled all over the world for more than 30 years, I’m setting down my suitcases in my hometown of Quebec City, and my hope is that Le Diamant will be a unique showcase for all forms of art. This unprecedented artistic convergence will allow the culture and innovation from here and beyond to shine in a remarkable and welcoming space.
