Les finalistes des prix Arts excellence dévoilés

THREE RIVERS — This was the big unveiling Tuesday of the finalists of the 20th edition of the prix Arts excellence, an initiative of Culture Mauricie. In addition to the tribute that will be made to a personality of here for the whole of his work and his contribution to the cultural community, seven awards will be presented during this evening which will be held on march 14, the THIS.

Six categories were the responsibility of the jury chaired by Denis Massé, founding member of the Tireux d Roches. This is the prize awarded by the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, the finalists were selected by an independent jury. This was not an easy task for the committee who has had to peel more than fifty applications submitted in the different categories, demonstrating the abundance of art in the region. Some of the categories, including the Creation of visual arts of the year and the cultural Initiative of the year include the four finalists because of the large amount of projects submitted to the jury, which is still reached by consensus.

This vitality of the culture, rejoices greatly Sandie Letendre, chair of the board of directors of Culture Mauricie. “There are a lot of applications but it is also important to emphasize the quality of the applications submitted, which makes the jury’s task was not evident.”

Moreover, the region as whole was well represented, since the initiatives are remote from the major centres, have found their way to the list of finalists. For the former general and artistic director of Corporation of development of the arts and culture of the City of La Tuque this presence has a particular resonance. “We don’t want the geographic distance of the headquarters of Culture in the Mauricie region is an obstacle to their representation.”
