The Regroupement des arts de rue du Québec has set up the Good Practices Committee, a group composed of experienced street artists whose mission is to support members in the conditions of hosting their street shows by proposing serious and concrete guidelines. The proposed clauses are those that we consider important and relevant. They are proposed as a guide to establish a common basis. Please note that this is not an exhaustive contract. If the answers to your questions are not found in this document, do not hesitate to share your questions and experiences. Everything can be negotiated and you will be asked to be flexible. If you feel that you are agreeing to terms that do not meet the basic standards detailed here, remember that this may have an impact on the general terms of hosting. Therefore, do not hesitate to remind your client that you are granting an exception to the street arts labour standards. Please note that this is an evolving document that will be regularly improved by the Good Practices Committee: your comments and questions are welcome.

Memoir on the status of the artist

On February 1, 2021, as part of the public consultations on the revision of the Status of the Artist legislation, the Conseil des arts de Montréal invites the RAR to submit a brief of a few pages on the recognition of street arts as a discipline. This is a considerable opportunity to add the voice of street artists to the concert of "professional and recognized arts", and for the creation of social safety nets to address the precariousness of artists. 

Locations: practice, rehearsal, creation

Because we know how difficult it is to find the perfect place to develop creations that are to be presented in the open air, the RAR offers you a list of locations that will meet your most specific needs.

Please note that this list will be regularly revised and updated.
