“Built Heritage” is the theme of Arts Alive! 2022, bringing together musicians, artists and artisans for two days of celebrations. On Friday, August 19, the festival will host two concerts during which a Quebec City painter will create a painting inspired by the music. The painting will be officially revealed the following day.

On Saturday, August 20, the Chaussée des Écossais will be filled with local artisans’ booths, while the stage will be busy with concerts, a workshop, and presentations by community members. Family activities will be held throughout the day, including a special Storytime and a sand castle contest.

The Arts Alive! Québec festival started as an initiative by the English-language Arts Network, a not-for-profit organization that connects, supports, and promotes Quebec’s English-speaking artists and art communities. Over the past years, several regions throughout the province have participated in Arts Alive! Québec. These festivals have featured their local artistic communities with events reflecting local tastes and customs. In 2022, the Morrin Centre is proud to feature Quebec City’s artistic community for the eighth consecutive year with its own take on the festival. Arts Alive! Québec is an opportunity to come together and to celebrate local English-language creativity while building bridges between English-speaking and French-speaking communities.

This project is made possible by the support of the Government of Canada and of Québecor.


We also thank les Producteurs de lait de Capitale-Nationale–Côte-Nord and the Groupe Satir Productions for their contribution to the project.
