Introductory Remarks

March 10 is the launch of the 9th Festival des Arts de la scène Val-Gatinois (Performing Arts Festival) in the Lac-Sainte-Marie community. Thanks to the financial contributions of our partners, the Festival will host within the South of the Gatineau Valley and its surroundings a number of quality events presented by spirited professional artists from the region and from afar. Join us in this wonderful cultural adventure in Lac-Sainte-Marie from March 10 to 17, 2018. The events will cover a variety of styles, from Western to Blues, Opera to Jazz, Rock to Classical, Magic and Improvisation and for our young school attendees, aboriginal storytelling and dance.

Mrs. Chantal Lamarche, our Honorary President for this 9th Festival, actively supports the importance of culture in the Gatineau Valley. Happy Festival to all!

A word of welcome from Honorary President, Mrs. Chantal Lamarche, Prefect

Préfet de la MRC Vallé de la Gatineau

Dear fellow citizens,

Please allow me, as Prefect of the MRC Vallée-de-la-Gatineau and honorary president of this beautiful cultural event, to welcome you to the 9th edition of Festival des Arts de la Scène Val-Gatinois! Not having grown up in an environment where culture was present, I have always been drawn to the arts. That is why, as soon as I heard that theater workshops were being held in our region, I didn’t hesitate to enroll my daughter. Theater allows young people to face their fears, to break from isolation, and especially to build self-esteem by showcasing their many talents to spectators. That's how I met Nadine Pinton and Denis Labelle more than 10 years ago. They were offering young people a great opportunity to get on the stage. Since then, I have continued to follow and support them in this great cultural project! As Prefect of the MRC Vallée-de-la-Gatineau, it is a great privilege for me to act as honorary president. I believe we must promote culture in all its forms because it allows a community to recognize itself, to define itself, and to identify itself. The MRC Vallée-de-la-Gatineau abounds with cultural richness due to its heritage and terroir. It is therefore essential to recognize the fundamental contribution of culture as a source of inspiration, fulfillment, and common identify, but also as a means of population retention, an economic force, and of collective pride. It is my role and my responsibility to make sure that culture occupies a place of choice within our community!

Happy festival to all and welcome to the Vallée-de-la-Gatineau!

Culturally yours,

Chantal Lamarche, Prefect MRC Vallée-de-la-Gatineau
