Synapse C aims to enhance and pool arts and culture data development expertise in Québec and Canada and become an international reference in the augmentation of these data to benefit the cultural ecosystem.


Establish a data culture within the cultural sphere; play a pivotal national role in promoting data-related knowledge between the cultural, academic and business sectors; position Synapse C as a key global player in cultural data management.



Synapse C is entrusted with cultural data for research and analysis and ensures their diligent, neutral and secure assessment. In compliance with the Privacy Act and out of ethical concern, Synapse C maintains the confidentiality of all the information that is shared.


The approach advocated by Synapse C is entirely based on the synergy between the partners collaborating in every step of the data pooling process. The ability of the data analysis sector, creative industries and arts to work together to build a genuine co-construction of knowledge is the key to our organization’s success. The model set out by Synapse C always gives priority to collective projects and data analyses that benefit several cultural partners.

Research and transfer committee

The Research and transfer committee essentially aims to spark a conversation and establish collaborations between the cultural sphere and researchers in different fields, including artificial intelligence, data analysis, health, marketing, law, urban planning and tourism. Their combined knowledge helps better identify research focuses in data analytics and business intelligence to support the cultural sector.

The committee is also mandated to share its knowledge and learnings and disseminate the know-how it develops, in particular through conferences and training.
