The Borough has enthusiastically supported the Festival Quartiers Danses (FQD) since it moved to the Southwest. It is now an integral part of our programming with out-of-the-ordinary cultural mediation activities accessible to all audiences. Let us think in particular of the choreographies integrated into the very popular Carnets project or the artists in residence in the Gédéon-de-Catalogne park and the Sir-George-Étienne-Cartier square, who are returning for a second season.
With this anniversary program, FQD pulls out all the stops to introduce us to renowned and emerging artists, and offer us audacious opportunities to express ourselves, to live enriching experiences and to grow, not only as individuals, but also as a community.
This 20th festival promises to be memorable. Enjoy!
