Journées de la culture

Journées de la culture

21e etition

Past event
Sep 29-Oct 1, 2017
Location :

For the past 20 years, in late September, people have been experiencing and celebrating arts and culture across Quebec during the Journées de la culture. This year, the theme of the celebration and the highlighted artistic discipline will be music.

Les Journées de la culture, three days of interactive activities, discovery and appreciation of arts and culture, offered free to the public throughout Quebec.

Since 1997, les Journées de la culture have been held on the last Friday of September and on the two following days, as decreed by the National Assembly of Québec.

A vast culture happening in large cities and small towns, les Journées de la culture aim to raise awareness about the importance and the need for greater access to arts and culture for all citizens in over 300 Québec communities in Québec.

Les Journées are carried out voluntarily by artists, workers and cultural organizations, who, during the three days of the event, offer free activities so citizens can explore the hidden side of art and culture. Our rich and welcoming demonstrations, hands-on workshops, conferences and guided tours build simple and warm relationships between artists, cultural workers and their fellow citizens.

Every year since the earliest Journées de la culture, Bos Advertizing, one of our very first partners, has designed original campaigns.

Les Journées de la culture are coordinated by Culture pour tous, an independent non-profit organization whose mission is to contribute to the democratization of culture in Québec. A recognized leader in cultural mediation and democratization, Culture pour tous develops and produces other projects and initiatives that foster access to creative actions and cultural participation, including the Carnet de la culture, a tool for school groups, the Parcours interculturel to value the work of immigrant professional artist, Art at work and Culture in Business, a program of collective creation in a work environment, Je m'affiche pour la culture!, a grass-roots movement where each person presents most beautiful cultural profile, and a gateway to Cultural Mediation that showcases artistic practices and their interactions with the other spheres of society.

To carry out its mission, Culture pour tous receives support from the Government of Québec through the ministère de la Culture, des Communications et de la Condition féminine and from various partners including Sun Life Financial and Hydro-Québec, which sponsor the Journées de la culture.
