With the new component TRIBUTE TO…, the Journées de la culture propose to celebrate cultural heritage. Each edition will highlight a personality or an element of the priceless heritage bequeathed to us by the creators of yesterday and which defines the genetic code of our cultural identity.
The year 2023 will mark the centenary of the birth of the most famous Canadian painter in the world: Jean Paul Riopelle. At the invitation of the Fondation Riopelle, the 2022 school and cultural year will kick off celebrations across the country!
The program proposes activities related to the themes and subjects addressed by the painter, or inspired by his creation, his journey or his universe.
