Announcing Arts Alive! Québec!

Fri 08 May, 2015 - Spotlight


This summer, from June through October, ELAN presents Arts Alive! Québec – a province-wide celebration of the arts in six different Québec communities. This is the first time that artists and art lovers from major English-speaking communities in Québec are joining forces to promote their own creative and cultural vitality.

Hudson(June 4 to 7)
Québec (June 12 & 13)
West Island (June 26 & 27)
Knowlton (July 3 & 4)
Huntingdon (August 8 & 9; 14 & 15)
Wakefield (October 1 to 4)

Each region will host a weekend mini-festival that will include indoor and outdoor family entertainment and activities. Guest authors, live music, theatre, poetry, dance … the richness of each region will be uniquely reflected in its programming. Visual artists and artisans will have the opportunity to display and sell their works and many of the scheduled events are free. Well-known headliners, (Plants and Animals, Kim Richardson, Motel Raphaël, The Once, Dave Gossage and more), share the weekend line-ups with local performers to create truly collaborative celebrations uniting community and professional artists.
