Cuturel Objectives

Mission statement.

Promote culture through the visual arts among the people of Papineauville, Petite-Nation and the Outaouais.

How.

  • Outdoor exhibition.  Every year on the last weekend of August, we organize an outdoor exhibition where visual artists and craftsmen are invited to participate. Our goals are to:
    • Promote cultural development throughout the RCN by holding an event that promotes our people’s access to the visual arts in their daily lives;
    • Highlight the work and dynamism of the artists and craftsmen of the visual arts of Papineauville and Papineau’s MRC;
    • To stimulate cultural exchanges on the territory of the MRC and outside the world by inviting artists and artisans from other regions to join us for this event.
  • Introductory workshops. At the event workshops are organized to introduce young people to painting and sculpture. Our main goal is to promote, initiate and educate young people in the RCN in the visual arts through color and sculpture workshops.
