PRESS RELEASE – A change in leadership at Confluence – Créateur de vocations 

Montreal, Thursday, January 18th, 2024 – It is with mixed feelings that the members of the Board of Directors of Confluence – Créateur de vocations inform the community and its partners of the departure of its General Manager, Parise Mongrain, who will be gradually joining the Regroupement québécois de la danse (RQD) as their new General Manager.

We would like to extend our warmest appreciation to Parise for her invaluable and unfailing involvement, and for the immense amount of work she has accomplished in the course of her duties. Parise founded Confluence – CV in 2021, built on the foundations of CQRTD, which she had led since its inception in 2015.   

Confluence – CV's mission is to offer a sustainable solution to the overexposure of performing artists to constrained career transitions. The recognition of the essential nature of our mission and intervention model has now been acknowledged by the cultural community.   

Artists participating in the current cohorts of our programs can rest assured that the services they already benefit from will remain available while the transition process takes its course. 

In addition, it is with great enthusiasm that we announce the appointment of Christine St-Pierre as President of the Board of Directors of Confluence – Créateur de vocations. 

First a journalist, then a politician, she brilliantly held the positions of Minister of Culture, Communications and the Status of Women, then Minister of International Relations and la Francophonie. Her extensive knowledge and sensitivity to the status of the artist make her an invaluable and committed colleague.  

Ms. St-Pierre has been deeply involved in our mission since she joined our Board of Directors, and it's a great privilege for us to work alongside this driving force! 

"I would like to thank Confluence – CV for the confidence it has demonstrated in me. I hope to be able to contribute to the growth of our organization, whose importance is unquestionable in Quebec's cultural milieu."   

- Christine St-Pierre 

We wish Ms. St-Pierre all the best in her new responsibilities and salute Parise's considerable contribution to the cause of performing artists in professional transition.
