The Bal des lumières returns for its second edition in 2016! On March 23rd, 2016, the Douglas Mental Health University Institute Foundation, the Fondation de l’Institut universitaire en santé mentale de Montréal and the Mental Illness Foundation, will present Québec’s biggest event ever for mental health. Over 800 guests will gather at the Centre Bell to speak out loud and clear for an end to the stigma surrounding mental illness and reassert their support for the three major Montréal foundations that each work in their own way to advance the cause.

For this edition, artistic direction of the evening has been entrusted to theatre director, artistic director and well-known actor Denis Bouchard. Under the theme of magic, dozens of artists from the worlds of music, dance, circus and magic will create a dazzling festive atmosphere at the Centre Bell!
