20 Years

Founded by Annick-Patricia Carrière and Gabriel Paré in 2001, Agence Station Bleue is one of the most recognized performing arts agencies in Canada. Its growing and ongoing presence in national and international performing arts sectors, its twenty years of expertise in the promotion and representation of artists, as well as its keen understanding of the challenges in this artistic field, make it an essential partner.

Proud to Promote Greatness

Proud to promote excellence, Agence Station Bleue works with a team of committed and highly qualified professionals who have a thorough knowledge of the performing arts and extensive experience working with artists from various disciplines. True ambassadors devoted to creation and talent, they constantly build bridges, multiply meeting opportunities and maintain a pertinent dialogue with presenters, promoters and other partners, relying on a solid network of contacts and strategic tools. Their steady commitment allows artists to access the exposure they both seek and deserve. This is evidenced by the nearly 600 shows offered annually by the agency, on tour throughout Quebec, in all Canadian provinces and in more than 25 countries around the world.
