The MRC du Haut-Saint-Laurent is proud to participate in the Entente de partenariat territorial pour les arts et les lettres en Montérégie.
This agreement between the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, the Ministère des Affaires municipales et de l'Habitation, the MRCs of Acton, Beauharnois-Salaberry, Haut-Richelieu, Haut-Saint-Laurent, Haute-Yamaska, Jardins-de-Napierville, Marguerite-D'Youville, Maskoutains, Pierre-De Saurel, Roussillon, Rouville, La Vallée-du-Richelieu de Vaudreuil-Soulanges, the CLD de Brome-Missisquoi, Longueuil and the Table de concertation régionale de la Montérégie, in collaboration with Culture Montérégie, has resulted in the awarding of $265,220 to artists and cultural organizations in the Montérégie-Ouest region for the realization of projects over the coming year.
"A region that supports art and culture is stronger and more dynamic. As a participant with the Table de concertation régionale de la Montérégie, the MRC du Haut-Saint-Laurent firmly believes that the artists and organizations that make up our region help define who we are. We should be proud of our local culture and our local artists, and as such, we are pleased to contribute to the awarding of grants for artistic projects in the region,” says MRC du Haut-Saint-Laurent prefect, Louise Lebrun.
The projects were selected by a jury of professional artists assembled by the CALQ based on merit, the quality of the proposal and how well it reflected the objectives of the program.
The selected projects are the following:
Her project will involve teenagers in the process of writing a script, as well as conducting the visual and sound research, and the realization of the storyboard for an experimental animated film entitled Arcadia. “I am extremely grateful for this support, and I would like to thank the partners who made it possible to distribute these grants," says Caroline Caza.
Her initiative will involve the creation and presentation of an installation project on urban sprawl in Montérégie-Ouest. "Thanks to the CALQ, the MAMH and the MRC du Haut-Saint-Laurent, I will have the opportunity to realize my project and share my work with the population," says artist Alyson Champ.
This was the third and final call for projects under the three-year agreement. The partners are currently discussing the possibility of renewing this agreement for the next three years, in order to continue to support the creation, production and dissemination of projects that promote links between the arts and the different communities in the Montérégie region.
