Geopoetics: Finissage

A project celebrating the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation

Geopoetics – Exhibitions

1 to 5 p.m.
Stewart Park, Stewart Hall Cultural Centre, Stewart Hall Art Gallery

Take the opportunity to visit the Geopoetics exhibitions one last time on this day that will mark the end of the celebrations organized for the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation at the Stewart Hall Cultural Centre.

Bercer le temps

1 to 5 p.m.

Bercer le temps invites us to use a rocking chair to enter the gentle world of lullabies. This musical and participative installation welcomes visitors in a suspended time and place, contrasting with the city’s restlessness. With your feet touching the grass, feel the chair rock and hear echoes of childhood in songs from around the world.

Artists: Sarah Dell’Ava, IIya Krouglikov  and Wolfram Sander

Ensemble Strada: Fanfarniente

Between 2:15 and 4:30 p.m.
Marching band

La Fanfarniente is a musical street performance that will stroll through Stewart Park and inside the Stewart Hall Cultural Centre while performing an eclectic and international repertoire. From waltz to salsa, klezmer to Nino Rota, twelve outstanding musicians, under the direction of El Director, blend musical styles with boundless enthusiasm and instill an irresistible urge to dance! This impressive marching band will parade around with a wild array of caps, coats, kilts and ruffled skirts!

Creative workshop

Between 1 and 5 p.m.
For all

Take part one last time in a creative workshop where you will create a memory from Geopoetics. The shapes found in André Dubois’ sculpture Les ombres claires will take the form of a spinning lantern recalling the artwork of Nicole Dextras.
