Tout culture, your new Outaouais cultural hub

While the Outaouais region is known for its natural and tourist attractions, we mustn’t underestimate its thriving arts and culture scene. As an important historical region for indigenous populations as well as a popular homebase for various communities, the Outaouais is overflowing with cultural, historical, and artistic activities for all tastes and all ages. Culture is at the heart of our regional identity and allows residents to share in important life moments, to entertain themselves and to explore new horizons, all while discovering our local talents.

These are but some of the reasons that Culture Outaouais created Tout culture, your new Outaouais cultural hub. Residents and tourists alike will be able to take stock of the Outaouais’s cultural richness thanks to this new collaborative platform.

A cultural calendar highlighting the Outaouais

You’d like to plan a night out but don’t know where to go? A cursory glance at the Tout culture events calendar will highlight the diversity and wealth of cultural activities at your fingertips. Whatever your preferences you’re sure to find something to quench your cultural thirst. Plays, movie screenings, concerts, art exhibitions, dance performances, you’ll find a bit of everything across the entire Outaouais region, from the Pontiac to the Petite-Nation, from the Vallée-de-la-Gatineau all the way to downtown Old Hull in Gatineau. The event calendar will offer you an overview of all the cultural offerings in the Outaouais region that you will be able to filter by category or audience. You will also be able to view the results on our new dynamic map to find the events closest to you. Our new cultural places repertory will allow you to take stock of the cultural ecosystem of the Outaouais region.

A cultural magazine to highlight the Outaouais

Given its rich cultural offering, you’d be forgiven for getting a bit lost. Thankfully Tout culture has launched a new cultural magazine highlighting the key cultural players in the Outaouais as well as its artists. Also, thanks to a partnership with local media outlet Le Pressoir, you’ll be able to discover their must-sees once a month, as well as local artist profiles. You’ll also find articles about the cultural workers and organizations that help shape the Outaouais cultural scene.

A new workshop section to help develop your artistic practice

One doesn’t become a great artist without practice, and thankfully the Outaouais is home to hundreds of amazing professional artists that are willing to share their knowledge. Thanks to the new workshop section of Tout culture, artists and organizations will now be able to share their courses and programs, whether they be for professionals or amateurs. You will find workshops for all skillsets, interests, and age groups.
