When culture contributes to the democratic life


Three cultural organizations stand out from the rest for their commitment to promoting and stimulating citizen action: Culture Montréal, Action terroriste socialement acceptable (ATSA) and Écomusée du fier monde.

Culture Montréal won the top 2013 Prix du maire de Montréal en démocratie award, while the two other organizations were crowned with special mentions. Our city’s current dynamism can be attributed, in part, to the tireless efforts of our citizens and cultural workers. Culture Montréal was particularly skilful in connecting with and motivating people across the island to be more engaged. The activities of this organization inspired considerable citizen participation, which has become one of Montréal’s assets.
