RIDEAU, the Réseau indépendant des diffuseurs d'événements artistiques unis is an independent network of presenters of artistic events. RIDEAU has 169 members, 160 organisations mainly from the province of Quebec and nine regional networks of arts presenters. Founded in 1978, the association's mission is to foster the performing arts by supporting its members' productions. To realise its mandate, RIDEAU lobbies on behalf of its membership to all levels of government and participates in arts industry activities that involve some or all of its members. RIDEAU is also actively involved in documenting developments important to the performing arts industry, primarily in Quebec, and strives to promote and provide structure to the milieu both in Quebec, in other parts of French Canada and internationally. Over the years, RIDEAU has offered presenters, agents, concert promoters and their counterparts valuable information and communication tools: RIDEAU's computer network, its website and Catalogue du spectacle. RIDEAU is also the organiser of the Bourse RIDEAU, an annual event held in Quebec City in February of each year.
