Emancipation Day in Canada - August 1, 2021:

Earlier this year, the House of Commons voted unanimously to designate Aug.1 as Emancipation Day across Canada — a day to celebrate, educate, and reflect on what freedom means. The date commemorates the anniversary of when Britain's Parliament abolished slavery in the British Empire in 1834.

Free Up! is the annual youth-led celebration of Emancipation Day featuring music, theatre, spoken word, and dance, hosted by Ngozi Paul, featuring Jully Black and co-produced with CBC ARTS.

DESTINATION BUENOS AIRES - WEBCAST From July 24 To August 12, 2021

Vivaldi in Venice, Boccherini in Madrid, Durante in Naples, and two centuries later, Piazzolla in Buenos Aires: the thread of an extraordinary musical tradition runs through the music, as profoundly Italian as it is cosmopolitan, spanning the flamboyant accents of the Baroque to the suave cantilenas of the master of Argentinian tango. Les Violons du Roy and Nicolas Ellis invite you on a journey of pleasure and harmony in which the Canadian virtuoso Kerson Leong shines in his Lanaudière debut.

Habiter la fenêtre, Mélanie Désourdy, Du 8 juillet au 3 août 2021.

Mon intérieur intime guette cet extérieur, désormais inquiétant, par une constante : la fenêtre de mon habitat. La quête de la lumière, la recherche du monde extérieur, le dialogue avec mon autre se résument alors par le déplacement du regard vers mon seul repère : les ouvertures vitrées.
