Welcome to the Cartel of new music, our international network of presenters and artistic directors specializing in music creation. You are here, like all of us, to promote exchanges and touring of artists and works between Europe and North America, and also to consolidate the structure we already have in place for increasing outreach.
This 4th edition was prepared by Cartel’s completely new Executive Committee which brings together six enthusiastic directors from Canada, the United States and Europe. We hope that this new structure will foster exchanges in between meetings of the network.
Cartel 2018 is produced in partnership with the current new music festival in Victoriaville (FIMAV) which is welcoming us with great enthusiasm, and the Forum of the Canadian New Music Network (CNMN), which brings together nearly 80 new music professional from all regions of Canada. In addition to participating in formal and informal meetinsgs, you will have the opportunity to attend an amazing selection of concerts presented by FIMAV and Le Vivier.
Welcome to Cartel, welcome home!
