Tribute video projection

September 13 to November 12, 2023

The Quartier des Spectacles Partnership launched a brainstorming process on the subject of recognition, and formed a working committee composed of members of the Partnership’s board and individuals involved in, or with a particular interest in, commemoration activities. Among other things, the committee’s mandate is to identify and evaluate ways in which the Quartier des Spectacles can honour the contributions of significant individuals, in the process helping safeguard the history of the Quartier des Spectacles.

The group soon embraced the idea of a tribute in video projection form – an original work that would provide an artistic illustration of the accomplishments of key people, making the creators and artisans better known to local and visiting members of the general public. A call for nominations was issued, inviting the members of the Partnership to submit the names of people to be honoured. The selection process weighed the significant contributions of the artist or professional to the Quartier des Spectacles, the quality of their approach and professional accomplishments, and the impact of their completed works.
