The 2021–2022 recipients are:
DYNAMO THÉÂTRE INC
City of Laval
DYNAMO THÉÂTRE INC presents La Théorie des cordes – volet citoyen, a co-creation theatre project involving the public in Laval. Participants will be asked to create sequences of physical theatre in groups of three (a professional performer, a teenager and a senior), expressing their vision of time, space and dimensions through movement and words.
MRC de Vaudreuil-Soulanges
Les femmes se ménagent! is a co-creation video project that takes a lighthearted and poetic look at women’s invisible labour in the home. Participants will be encouraged to use various living arts techniques to create a fun way of expressing themselves on the theme. This project will be carried out in partnership with the CACVS, the Centre des femmes La Moisson, the Maison de la famille de Vaudreuil-Soulanges and the City of L’Île-Perrot.
Elyse De Lafontaine
City of Terrebonne
Les Couleurs du territoire is an artistic project seeking to highlight the concept of territory through a collective pictorial work using plant inks obtained from wild plants growing in the borough of Rivières-des-Prairies-Pointes-aux-Trembles and the city of Terrebonne.
City of Montréal
The Longueuil composer’s Atelier de composition musicale project is carried out in partnership with the Maison des Amériques and LatinArte and is intended for children aged 7 to 12. The project helps children compose small musical pieces for instruments from different families (wind, brass, string and percussion). The process culminates with a concert featuring the composed pieces.
The Cultural Bridges, From One Shore to the Other program fosters connections between professional artists and residents of Montréal and other municipalities in the Greater Montréal area.
It is a Conseil des arts de Montréal initiative offered in collaboration with the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, the Conseil des arts de Longueuil, the Conseil des arts et de la culture de Vaudreuil-Soulanges, the Quartier des Spectacles Partnership, and the cities of Laval, Longueuil and Terrebonne.
