Activities for everyone at the Journées de la culture

Poetry, music, exhibitions, workshops and guided tours

The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, Morris Trudeau, is proud to present the programming provided for residents as part of the Journées de la culture (Culture Days) on October 1 and 2. Once again this year, the Stewart Hall Cultural Centre and the Pointe-Claire Public Library will be offering a wide range of exciting activities.

“Young and old will have the opportunity to discover new kinds of art, have fun at the artistic workshops and demonstrations, appreciate the exhibitions, and talk about the works they’ve seen,” says the mayor.

This year, a treasure hunt, an exhibition of photographs and a guided tour conducted by a historic character will reveal the secrets of Stewart Hall, a manor celebrating the 100th anniversary of its construction. Creative workshops will introduce participants to new artistic practices. There will also be an opportunity to enjoy current exhibitions, interactive demonstrations, and poetry readings and discover the crafts practiced by guilds.

“Everyone is invited to participate in these free activities,” says Mayor Trudeau. “This exceptional event makes us aware of artistic diversity. Culture shapes our identity, taking what makes us different and what brings us together.”

Complete programming details are available online in the calendar section of the City website.

The Journées de la culture will take place on October 1, from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., and October 2, from 1 to 5 p.m., at the Stewart Hall Cultural Centre and the Pointe-Claire Public Library.
