in Montreal and Saguenay
CULTURE CATALANE is an arts season, an action to raise the profile and promote all the Catalan cul-tural activity that will be taking place from September 2018 to July 2019 at diffe-rent venues in the cities of Montreal and Quebec. And ... this time we’re co-ming to Saguenay!
During the 2018/2019 season, the Institut Ramon Llull will be collaborating with different venues and festivals in Canada such as the Festival Internatio-nal de la Littérature, the Agora de la Danse, the Casal de Catalunya in Mon-treal, the Quartiers Danses festival, the Regard Festival de Court Métrage and the Festival International des Arts de la Marionette in Saguenay.
The Institut Ramon Llull – a public body that promotes Catalan language and culture internationally – and the Institut Català de les Empreses Culturals (ICEC), through its internationally recognized brand name Catalan Arts, are working together with a delegation of Catalan programmers and artists in Ci-nars, M pour Montréal and Mondial Montréal, promoting the presence of Quebec in international markets.
CULTURE CATALANE is a programme that encourages us to establish contacts with Canadian cultural interlocutors to achieve a continual presence of Cata-lan artists in their programmes; it encourages us to discover spaces for possible future collaboration and to update ties with the different international festivals and venues; to work on decentralization and to get to know other cities and venues in Quebec. We understand internationalization as a journey there and back that ought to lead to two-way exchange projects, with the creation of artistic residencies and with the presence of artists from Quebec in our theatres and festivals.
