About Us

Who are we?

The Canadian Hungarian Artists Collective (CHAC), founded in 2002, is a federally chartered non profit organization. With its head office in Montreal, its current Canada-wide membership includes over 90 professional Hungarian descent artists and supporters of the arts.

CHAC‘s goals are to:

• create educational, collaborative and career-enhancing opportunities between artists in different regions of Canada

• provide a showcase for Canadian artists of Hungarian descent by organizing curated group exhibitions across Canada and internationally

• organize projects which invite community participation and advance the cultural awareness and enrichment of the community as a whole, creating dialogue on the benefits of multiculturalism

• assist the career development of emerging and immigrant artists

• offer members a socially supportive milieu and regular reunions which favor the cultivation of ideas and the continuing appraisal of skills and concepts

• maintain a web site and data bank for the organization and its members

• regularly disseminate professional information via bulletins and news letters

• organize fund-raising opportunities to accomplish the above goals
