Through this initiative we hope to bring visitors, be they Montrealers, Quebecers, or visitors from elsewhere, to discover the artistic, architectural, and historical wealth of these little-known and in some instances difficult to access spaces.
The Ulysse travel guide Montréal, un patrimoine religieux à découvrir is a staple companion for any local or visitor looking to get better acquainted with Montreal’s religious heritage. We will be distributing some extracts of this text to educate participants about the wealth and diversity of Montreal’s many cultures and traditions. The event also aims expand religious heritage’s general visibility and that of the cultural communities that are affiliated with it across Montreal’s neighborhoods.
Activities and cultural mediation connected to the event contribute to a schedule including several interpretive activities emphasizing the appropriation and appreciation of heritage.
