Luminous Pathway

The essence of the Quartier des spectacles’ visual identity, the Luminous Pathway showcases the area’s rich offering. More than 30 public spaces and cultural venues are illuminated.

The Luminous Pathway has three elements:

1. Architectural video projections

Thursday to Saturday from sunset to 11 p.m*.
When night falls over the city, the various building façades illuminate and become the backdrop for original works all year long. New video projections are presented regularly.

*Except during certain events.


With contributions from recent-immigrant children and their parents, the MAPP_MTL festival, artists Charlotte Risch, whose background is French and Japanese, and Thaïla Khampo, of Cambodian heritage, present a monumental mapping creation. Un monde Multicolore, presented on the façade of the Grande Bibliothèque, celebrates diversity and harmonious difference. The project is supported by the Quartier des Spectacles Partnership, Montreal.
