We are proud to announce the publication of the winter edition of our “Québec Culture” brochure featuring a host of exciting offerings from Québec on this side of the Atlantic.
Grab your diary! Our new brochure is out and, as you will see, there will be plenty of occasions to enjoy the richness, dynamism and diversity of Québec culture in the coming months – with both well established and rising stars and even some award-winning shows.
This 57th edition see cultural events coming to all the territories covered by our Office: Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Ireland, Norway, Sweden and United Kingdom. We could not be prouder of Québec’s culture and how well it is represented here.
From the progressive and thrash metal of Voivod to the feel good songs of Rufus Wainwright, our pages devoted to music are crammed full of a multitude of talents in various musical genres.
There will be lots of Circus shows with no less than three companies: Cirque du Soleil, Cirque Alfonse and Le Gros Orteil.
Inuit art will tour Norway and Iceland in the Inuit Quajimajatuqangit exhibition curated by Evoq Architecture.
Don’t forget that TV5 Monde UK is FREE for UK viewers. You can watch it anytime, anywhere, with French or English subtitles, or without subtitles. They offer a rich variety of Québec shows, including Le journal de Radio-Canada (Québec news desk of Radio-Canada) every day at 7am.
Our Agent-General, Pierre Gabriel Côté says: “As Québec’s new Agent-General in London, I have been amazed to discover the scope and breadth of the Québec’s cultural offer in the UK, Ireland and the Nordic Countries. This international success deserves to be better known back home and the positive impact of these artists’ work on Québec’s global reputation, better appreciated.
“The cultural industries represents 175 000 jobs and contributes a 3% share to Québec’s GDP or 11 billion Canadian dollars. Interestingly, international export plays a huge part in this success with an annual value of 3 billion Canadian dollars.”
“It is an honour and a privilege for us to be able to support Québec culture to shine as it deserves to on the international stage. Thank you to all the incredible partners here who make it possible.”
The programme of le Mois de la Francophonie will be announced soon. More details about this exciting month will be published on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, so join us and stay tuned!
