Les Arts et La Ville Symposium comes to Sept-Îles – The Port of Sept-Îles supports the participation of cultural stakeholders from Sept-Îles

SEPT-ÎLES, March 6, 2018 – The Port of Sept-Îles is partnering with Les Arts et La Ville for its 31st annual symposium, which will be held in Sept-Îles from June 6 to 8, by funding an incentive to encourage cultural stakeholders in the area to participate in this major event. As a result of this partnership, 20 artists and cultural organization representatives from Sept-Îles will get a preferential rate when they register for the symposium.

“The Port of Sept-Îles is proud to be involved in this event,” said Pierre D. Gagnon, President and CEO of Port of Sept-Îles. “We’re helping members of the Sept-Îles cultural community take part in these topical and enriching discussions and meet participants from across the province. It’s sure to nourish the cultural vitality of our community.”

Sept-Îles Mayor Réjean Porlier is encouraging local cultural stakeholders to come out in force to the Les Arts et La Ville symposium: “It’s not every day that we get the chance to reflect together on cultural issues and exchange ideas with stakeholders from across Quebec. We often face the same challenges, and this is the chance to get creative and feed off each other’s ideas to solve them. It’s contagious!”
