Mozaïk Caravan

On June 8, 2022, the City of Vaudreuil-Dorion officially inaugurated its new cultural vehicle: the Mozaïk Caravan. It invests the public places of Vaudreuil-Dorion, taking in turn the air of mobile library, traveling exhibition hall, digital creation laboratory and cultural mediation workshop.

The Mozaïk Caravan project aims to meet citizens to allow them to participate in cultural activities, and this, in their neighborhood. The Caravan will be present in various events, including the Festival de cirque, the Rythmes d'été and the Fêtes de quartier. It will also visit seniors' residences, schools, daycares, community organizations and will be able to welcome small groups indoors for cultural mediation projects, literary conferences, digital creation activities and artistic residencies.

The Lab

The Lab is the new digital creation space of the Vaudreuil-Dorion library. Officially inaugurated in September 2019, it is accessible free of charge to citizens of all ages. 

At the Lab, new technologies are in the spotlight: drawing tablets, digital embroidery machine, 3D printer, vinyl cutter, macaroon press and heat press allow everyone to express their creativity. A manager is on hand to explain how the equipment works and guide people through their projects as needed.

You want to :  

  • make your own clothes?
  • Create a video game?
  • Make a comic book?
  • produce your own posters, buttons and stickers?
  • make 3D objects?

Don't wait any longer! Come and visit the Lab!

Notice to users 

Effective January 3, 2022, the Citizen Card will be required for the use of the following materials:

  • Filament for 3D printing
  • Transfer paper for heat press
  • Self-adhesive vinyl
  • Badges

The purpose of implementing this new procedure is to build a picture of the actual use of materials by Lab users.
