Become a member

Since Skol’s founding in 1984, our members have been the driving force behind the multiple projects that have been presented by the centre, which, due to their experimental nature, have contributed to the ongoing development of artistic practice.

As a member, you are encouraged to participate the Center’s activities, and to join us for our Annual General Meeting, where you can share your ideas and opinions while getting to know the Center. During the AGM, you will also have the chance to take part in the election of the Board of Directors, run for a position as a member of the Board, or become involved with one of our committees.

Faithful to core artist-run centre values, Centre des arts actuels Skol maintains a dynamic relationship with its members, who enrich the centre through their ideas, experience, and critical and artistic knowledge, as well as by occasionally volunteering.


General assembly and board of directors

Our assemblies are moments of togetherness and celebration of our centre! Members are encouraged to voice their opinions by being present and through voting. Members can also apply to become members of the board of directors. The annual general assembly usually takes place in June or July. We keep members informed via the members’ newsletter and through personal email invitations.


Members’ newsletter

Each month, we prepare and send out a newsletter exclusively for Skol members. This newsletter shares the centre’s latest news (new projects, changes in the team, etc.) and special offers from Skol and partner centres (calls for volunteers, calls for submissions, etc.). The newsletter also promotes members’ projects.


Galerie passage des membres

The Galerie passage des membres is an exhibition space dedicated entirely to members. A single work fee is provided for each exhibit in accordance with CARFAC norms.



When possible, the main gallery is available for members’ private activities (rehearsals, meetings, etc.). We also offer temporary office space with access to our Wi-Fi and a printer.



As committee members, Skol members control and reinvent the centre. Some committees are open to all, others function on an invitation-only basis.


Training and workshops

Skol offers many forms of free training to its members. Information regarding this training is provided via our newsletter.
