We are currently organizing the fifth annual Festival Bloomsday Montréal that will take place June 12-16, 2016. With readings from Ulysses, world class lectures by Joyce experts, film and storytelling events, Irish walking tours, musical, gastronomic, and Irish pub gatherings, celebrations of the close personal and literary relationship between Joyce and Samuel Beckett, and more on how Jewish themes played a major role in the composition of Ulysses, you can expect a fabulous festival. If you have not already attended one of our past festivals, we invite you to come and bring your family and friends.
We would like you to consider providing more direct support for Festival Bloomsday Montréal. As a unique, independent volunteer organization, we count on our partners and our participants for the financial support that makes our festival possible. Such support from a range of government, educational, cultural, and corporate organizations enables us to grow and maintain one of the world’s great celebrations of Irish writers and, in particular, James Joyce.
We want to continue providing the highest quality at the lowest possible ticket prices – including a number of free events to encourage everyone to participate, especially students and those in financial need. But to do this next year we will need the financial support of our Bloomsday community. So now, for the first time, we are asking you to donate. Bloomsday is a charitable organization and will provide you with an official tax receipt for your donation. (Registered charity number: 82504 3581 RR0001).
“Everyone’s Joyce” is our motto. We ask you to consider a donation of any amount you can afford. You can make your gift online or by mail. Join with our growing group of friends, partners and sponsors to help us create the best ever Festival Bloomsday Montréal in 2016.
To donate via Canada Post make cheques payable to: Festival Bloomsday Montréal and mail to 133 boulevard de l’Union, St. Lambert, Quebec, J4R 2M7.
