This one was brought to my attention and I felt I should mention it seeing as there seems to have been a drop in events of this kind ever since the mercury dropped ever so slightly. Read on…

“Danse Mur” will consist of an urban painting festival. Starting yesterday, September 17th and running through to September 27th, the festival will revolve around mural paintings and more specifically, 6 buildings in the Plateau. However the festival is not limiting the works to just painters — artists from different disciplines will be participating. Through spoken word, dance, and roundtables, organizers hope that the public will broaden their horizons with regards to urban texture, architechture, and the use of imagery.

The final works will be showcased September 25th – 27th as part of les Journees de la culture. Complete program for Danse Mur is available at
