This summer, the borough invites you to come outside to enjoy cultural activities! When you’re outdoors, keep an eye out for our artists—they may be performing near you!
This is what awaits you!
Three types of outdoor cultural events
Check out what’s going on in a park near you: clowns, giant puppets, musicians on stilts, percussionists playing Brazilian music and other inspiring artists will be putting on shows for the public.
Pop-up performances will take place in different locations in the borough throughout the month of August. The public will be treated to classical music, circus arts and dance performances.
To learn more, follow the Facebook pages of the Maison de la culture de Côte-des-Neiges and the Maison de la culture de Notre-Dame-de-Grâce.
Cultural mediation consists of building bridges between artists and their work and particular groups of citizens, in order to make culture more accessible.
This summer, several cultural mediation activities will be offered to young people in certain day camps, while respecting public health measures.
Quand l’art prend la parole
During this workshop for 6 to 12 year-olds, the presenter tells a story related to a work of visual art and encourages young participants to talk about it. They are then invited to create their own stories inspired by the group discussion.
Banderoles de joie
Hosted by Patsy Van Roost, known as the urban fairy, this is a workshop for creating banners with messages of hope. The banners made by young people aged 8 and up will be displayed on fences in Côte-des-Neiges, the locations of which will be shown on a map on the artist’s website.
Dance in parks and transdisciplinary arts
Dance activities offered by PRIM’R and Les Explositions will be held in borough parks.
And curator Mariza Rosales Argonza will lead kids from participating day camps through the exhibition Passages convergents. The young people will also participate in creating a collective work of art using recycled materials. This activity takes place at the Maison de la culture de Notre-Dame-de-Grâce.
* Cultural mediation activities are reserved for particular groups chosen by the borough based on various criteria.
Outdoor activities can only be held if public health measures (in particular, two metres of distancing between participants) are respected. Organizers may have to interrupt performances if necessary in order to protect the public.
