Saturday and Sunday, May 27 and 28 – Shared Cultures at the 2017 Cultural Rendez-vous

The Mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, Morris Trudeau, is pleased to invite residents to Cultural Rendez-vous, an event that will be held on May 27 and 28 at the Stewart Hall Cultural Centre.

As part of the celebrations surrounding the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation, the Stewart Hall Cultural Centre invites residents to come to Shared Cultures and learn about the various cultures that make Canada such a magnificent mosaic through a wide range of cultural activities for the whole family.

“The 2017 Cultural Rendez-vous bolsters the City’s program for celebrating this important anniversary through a variety of activities that highlight the cultural riches of our vast country. Families are invited to become better acquainted with the many facets that make up our cultural landscape,” said Mayor Trudeau.

A large number of cultural activities are on offer in such diverse forms as music and dance shows, exhibitions, demonstrations and art workshops.

Residents are particularly invited to take part in the in situ installation of art works in Stewart Park, as part of the Geopoetics project. Young and old alike will also enjoy making a small lantern that will be illuminated, along with hundreds of others, during the events marking Canada Day on July 1.

All activities are free. Cultural Rendez-vous will be held on Saturday and Sunday, May 27 and 28, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Stewart Hall Cultural Centre, located at 176 Du Bord-du-Lac – Lakeshore Road.

“We hope that residents will come out in large numbers to take advantage of these fun and creative activities and, at the same time, discover something new about the culture of our country,” said the Mayor in conclusion.
