By their nature, municipal elections represent a great challenge in terms of political representation for the CQT. A total of 198 municipalities are in the process of elections at the moment, each with its own priorities and particularities.
Wishing to encourage the theater community as well as cultural organizations to participate and actively defend their interests during this election period, the CQT has developed with the help of Bête féroce agency, a toolbox made up of several materials such as: letter templates, tips and other resources, designed specifically for cultural NPOs. This free toolkit is open to everyone!
