The Canadian Azrieli Foundation, known for its annual music competition and dedication to the arts, has announced the establishment of the Azrieli Music, Arts, and Culture Center (AMACC).

The creation of the Center comes after reviewing a decade of its arts support, signaling an expanded commitment from the Foundation.

AMACC reflects the Foundation’s goal to provide consistent backing as a funder and partnership as a collaborator to Canada’s art and culture community.

The Foundation’s Azrieli Music Competition has grown to become the largest composition competition in Canada, with commissions awarded for Jewish, Canadian, and international compositions.

In an official press statement, Dr. Sharon Azrieli said, “By uniting our grant-making, sector collaborations, strategic initiatives, and Azrieli Music Prizes program under the AMACC banner, we will create an impact that is greater than the sum of its parts, ensuring more Canadians of all ages enjoy a deeper relationship with the arts.”
