Profile Type: artist, commissioner, industry_resource
In 2001, a meeting was held on a common vision of the future of the City of Montreal and a number of representatives of the cultural community gathered around the table to reflect on what could be proposed in order to revitalize Montreal's cultural scene. That's when the idea of a Quartier des Spectacles was launched, so that culture could become a lever of development for Montreal. Quartier des Spectacles hosts more than 40 events per year and contributes to enhancing the outdoor culture with its own projects and provide logistical and financial support for other cultural initiatives.
