The Geopoetics project at the heart of the 21st Journées de la culture
Music, exhibitions, workshops, and a unique collection of “human books”
The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, Morris Trudeau, is pleased to invite residents to the Journées de la culture on September 30 and October 1. The Stewart Hall Cultural Centre and the Pointe-Claire Public Library will offer a series of cultural activities focused around Geopoetics, an art project organized as part of the celebrations marking the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation.
“With many events echoing the celebrations for Canada’s 150th birthday, young and old are invited to discover our rich and diverse geographical, cultural, and social heritage,” stated Mayor Trudeau.
To mark the occasion, the Central Library will host a unique collection of “human books” for everyone to enjoy a one-on-one conversation with personalities who have contributed to our rich heritage. Reservations are required to attend this event (514-630-1218, extension 1624).
At the Stewart Hall Cultural Centre, pianist Guillaume Martineau will end the Stewart Hall public piano season by taking listeners on a journey through the history of jazz as he delves into the world of Baroque music and performs imaginative rearrangements of well-known pieces. Young and old can take part in an ongoing creative workshop inspired by exhibitions. Everyone is also invited to learn about new crafts with various guilds.
This is also an opportunity to discover or rediscover facets of the exhibitions of the Geopoetics project, which has been an enormous success throughout the summer.
“These quality activities are offered free of charge to the community and will help everyone awaken their curiosity about new forms of art while having fun with family and friends,” said Mayor Trudeau.
The Journées de la culture will take place on Saturday, September 30 from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on Sunday, October 1 from 1 to 5 p.m. at the Stewart Hall Cultural Centre and the Pointe-Claire Public Library. A detailed schedule is available online in the calendar of events section of the City’s website (www.pointe-claire.ca) and in the City’s Leisure Guide (Leisure Pointe-Claire).
