The fonds documents Yves Charbonneau's musical career until 1975 on the one hand, and his photographic exploitations during the 1980s on the other hand. It gives an insight into the organization of the Quatuor du Jazz libre du Québec (1967-1975), the Val-David Artistic Colony (1970), the Ferme du Petit Québec libre (1970-1973) and l'Amorce (1972-1974), while highlighting the political dimension of these jazz-related initiatives.
The fonds is divided into the following series :
F033/A – Jazz libre du Québec
F033/B – Political newspapers
F033/C - Visual arts studies
The fonds contains legal documents, press clippings, leaflets, and notes concerning the activities of free music in Petit Québec libre and in l’Amorce. The fonds also contains political newspapers collected by Yves Charbonneau during the 1970s, as well as photographs related to Charbonneau’s visual arts studies, including portraits, landscape photography, and still-lifes.
The sub-series provides insight into the Black Theatre Workshop’s (BTW) many initiatives to support young performing artists. A first attempt to install a program to support young artists was the Beginners’ Workshop, which took place in January and February 1984, followed by an 11-week project known as the Summer Theatre, which took place during summer of the same year. The idea was revived with the installation of the Young Performers Initiative, later called Youthworks Program, which existed from 2000 to 2013. This workshop series offered free specialized theatre training for Montreal teenagers from 12 to 25 years old, who envisioned a career in the performing arts. Each spring the workshop series finished with the presentation of a play, as there were, among others, Shakin' the Mess Outta Misery ; Death of the Bourgeois Dream ; What If?, and Urban Legends / The Procrastin8r.
The sub-series contains play scripts, brochures, meeting notes, reports, program outlines, communications, interviews, photographs, schedules, zines, moving images, and sound recordings, among other documents.
