The Journées de la culture are three days of admission-free activities open to everyone that promote greater public access to arts and culture. As decreed by the National Assembly, they are held across Quebec every year on the last Friday of September and the following two days.

The three-day event features interactive activities where participants can obtain an inside look at the creative process and the skills involved. These activities are organized by professional artists, artisans and culture workers, business people, teachers and community workers, and municipal and government employees.

To become an organizer, you must design and take complete charge of holding one or more activities. Organizers participate on a voluntary basis. However, bearing in mind the important and essential work that professional artists do, we encourage organizers who engage their services to compensate them fairly.
