Art and Culture
Lived Differently

Arts-Cultures Massawippi is a non-profit organization that organizes shows, exhibitions, meetings and workshops where artists and the population of the Lake Massawippi valley and surrounding area can meet and exchange ideas.

Our goal is to highlight the crucial presence of arts and culture in the personal and social lives of the population. We also want to build bridges between artists and the citizens of the Lake Massawippi valley, in a spirit of inclusion and cultural mediation aimed at citizen participation and the cultural development of communities.

Not to be missed!
