Invitation to the 32nd Les Arts et la Ville symposium

The City of Vaudreuil-Dorion, along with the Conseil des arts et de la culture de Vaudreuil-Soulanges (CACVS), is extending an invitation to artists, cultural workers as well as volunteers and permanent staff from Vaudreuil-Soulanges organizations to attend the Les Arts et la Ville symposium, to be held on June 5, 6 and 7 at Château Vaudreuil.

Vaudreuil-Dorion is pleased to host this 32nd edition of Les Arts et la Ville, a major event in the cultural community which brings together some 350 attendees from a variety of Franco-Canadian communities. In an effort to make this event more accessible to its targeted clientele, the City and the CACVS are providing registration incentives to cultural and associative communities.

As such, a flat rate has been set at $100 for members and non-members of the Les Arts et la Ville network who are artists, cultural workers or volunteers/permanent staff from Vaudreuil-Dorion, while the regular rates are $325 and $550 respectively. Note that these prices include a pre-symposium lunch and the Thursday evening gala. Those interested in attending only the conferences on the first afternoon may do so at a cost of $25—this offer applies only to artists, cultural workers as well as volunteers and permanent staff from organizations. To obtain the promotional code required to register online, please contact Geneviève Goyer at 450 455-3371, extension 2301 or ggoyer@ville.vaudreuil-dorion.qc.ca.

Les Arts et la Ville

Recall that the symposium’s co-presidents are the Mayor of Vaudreuil-Dorion, Guy Pilon, Émilie Perreault, Journalist and Writer, and Pauline Thauvette-Leroux from Desjardins Vaudreuil-Soulanges. Speakers from Quebec, Acadia, Spain and France will present concrete examples of the important role culture plays in community development. The 2019 symposium is a unique opportunity for training and professional development. It is intended for community stakeholders and actors from across Quebec as well as from Acadian and Canadian French-speaking communities who wish to enrich their knowledge and pull some innovative ideas and frameworks from the experiences shared throughout the event.

Registration is open now, until May 22. For more details, visit www.arts-ville.org.
