Having received a registered charity in 2017, The 7 Fingers Foundation is pursuing three campaign goals :
• To support the creation, production and dissemination of innovative works;
• To equip the new Creation and Production Centre wiith state-of-the-art equipment and technology
• To give back to the community by offering creative residencies, artist mentoring, workshops, classes, symposiums and other learning activities.
Our financing campaign has been launched on February 6th, 2018 in the presence of M. Guy Laliberté, founder of Lune Rouge and Cirque du Soleil.
"This collective is a wonderful example of Montreal’s creativity, shining on both national and international stages. A story of friendship and of passion links me to Les 7 Doigts, who I have been following since their very beginning, 15 years ago. It is vital for me to encourage creation in order to enable the development of art here. That is why it gives me great pleasure to support Les 7 Doigts in the accomplishment of their mission,”
Other donors, including Investissements Québec, Daniel Gauthier, Gilles Ste-Croix, and the Caisse d'économie solidaire have also pledged to contribute to the campaign which, to date, has raised donations and pledges totalling $1.5 million towards its $5 million campaign goal.
Since creating their first show, Loft, in 2002, Les 7 Doigts have come a long way.
Today, after almost two dozen “homemade” productions and numerous large-scale collaborations, the collective has become one of the most active Quebec organizations on the international stage.
The 7 Fingers are looking to join forces with business leaders who will become friends, to help support the collective in its long-term development and to share the joys of sustainable growth.
Each of the 7 ambassadors will be paired with one of The 7 Fingers, fostering close links between each pair. Meetings with the creators and artists, attendance at rehearsals, tickets to shows around the world, as well as frequent opportunities to meet and share conversations, have a good meal and enjoy a good time together: everything is laid out for these ambassadors to embark on an enriching adventure. If, at the same time, they succeed in enriching the fundraising campaign, so much the better!
