Montréal’s first maison de la culture arts centre, the Maison de la culture Maisonneuve occupies a former fire station built in 1907. It offers an eclectic year-round program, including shows, films, conferences, lectures, exhibitions and events.
The building where it’s located, built in 1907 and designed by architect Charles-Aimé Reeves, housed a fire station until the mid-1990s.
The building’s masonry, ornamental metal cornices and wood joineries were restored in 2021 and 2022.
In keeping with the MHM climate plan, the Maison de la culture Maisonneuve arts centre is implementing multiple actions and initiatives aimed at fighting climate change. To reduce its environmental footprint, the Maison de la culture Maisonneuve submitted its candidacy and received the bronze eco-responsible stage accreditation (Scène écoresponsable) in 2022. By promoting eco-responsible consumption, significantly reducing its paper-based promotional tools, and offering programming with a focus on local artists, the Maison de la culture Maisonneuve is actively participating in the city’s ecological transition. In addition, the Maison de la culture Maisonneuve is a signatory to the charter of eco-responsible stage artisans (Charte des artisans de la scène écoresponsable).
The Maison de la culture Maisonneuve’s eco-responsible commitment reflects one of the orientations of the MHM cultural master plan aimed at deploying a cultural offer rooted in more environmentally responsible practices.
