20-40 cultural encounters Québec City–Montréal
The national capital took centre stage during the fifth annual Rencontres culturelles.
This program, which included eight exhibitions, 22 artists, seven maisons de la culture (Ahuntsic-Cartierville, Marie-Uguay, Pointe-aux-Trembles, Frontenac, Côte-des-Neiges, Plateau-Mont-Royal and Notre-Dame-de-Grâce) and one cultural centre (Henri-Lemieux), helped Montréal art lovers discover—or rediscover—the work of the province’s visual artists.
And for the first time, Rencontres culturelles partnered with Festival du nouveau cinema to present a round-table discussion on the moving image.
The line-up also featured literature, dance, music and theatre, creating an exciting showcase of Québec artists across the island.
Every year since 2009, the Accès culture network has hosted artists from a city or region of Québec in order to foster creative dialogue and exceptional interactions.
