CINARS (International Conference for the Performing Arts) was born in 1984 from the desire to innovate of a few representatives of artistic companies and visionary artists' agents who had the audacity to turn to other audiences and territories. Since then, CINARS' goal has been to create a global gathering place to showcase the talent and originality of artists from Quebec, Canada and abroad with a view to developing international tours. With the CINARS Biennale, the non-profit organization has created the world's first multidisciplinary performing arts market. It is a flagship event in the international cultural landscape and CINARS has become a world-renowned reference service to foster international exchanges for the performing arts around the world.
