Town of Rosemère, September 12, 2018 – The Thérèse-De Blainville RCM launched the 2018 edition of the “Journées de la Culture” (Culture Days) unfolding from September 28 to 30 inclusively. RCM prefect and Blainville mayor Richard Perreault urged the public to make the most of planned activities.

Cultural Action Round Table
The pooling of cultural development efforts in the RCM also involved a Cultural Action Round Table. This group brings together representatives of each of the towns, working together to develop ideas and oversee cultural projects in the RCM. Odyscène and the Petit theatre du Nord also contribute to the Table’s activities.
Sylvie Surprenant, the mayor of Sainte-Thérèse and Table chair, explained the nature of projects developed by this body. “I am thinking of projects resulting from the cultural development agreement concluded with the Ministry of Culture and Communications, such as the sign system currently being produced to provide information on the region’s built heritage or common projects such as the RCM’s summer show pamphlet. I am quite pleased of what we have achieved in this field in recent years,” she stated.
New format, New site for the regional activity
For its 8th edition, the regional portion of the event will move to Place Rosemère as of 10 a.m., Sunday, September 30. Activities will be held in the public court near Zara.
“This new format will make it possible for our territory’s cultural organizations and artists to interact with the public through workshops, booths and short stage performances, including that of Ludovic Bourgeois,” explained Eric Westram, mayor of Rosemère and Vice-Chairman of the Cultural Action Round Table.
“It is with considerable enthusiasm that we invite the residents of the Thérèse-De Blainville RCM to this celebration. This event will reflect culture in our region, which is to say, a culture that is young, varied, original, vibrant and open to the world,” concluded Mr. Westram.
