A Taste of Montreal, Quebec

did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT MONTREAL?
  1. Montreal is the largest city in the province of Quebec, the second-largest city in Canada and the seventh largest in North America. In the "agglomeration" of Montreal, which includes all of the municipalities on the island of Montreal. The city of Montreal proper had a population of 1,620,693 (as of 2006 census).

  2. One of the most famous Black-dominated urban neighbourhoods in Canada is Montreal's Little Burgundy, regarded as the spiritual home of Canadian jazz due to its association with many of Canada's most influential early jazz musicians. In present-day Montreal, Little Burgundy and the boroughs of Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce and Montréal-Nord have large Black populations, the latter of which has a large Haitian population.

  3. French is the city's official language and is also the language spoken at home by 59.9% of the population, followed by English at 19.4% (as of 2006 census). In the larger Montreal Census Metropolitan Area, 67.9% of the population speak French at home, compared to 16.5% who speak English. More than half of the population reports being able to speak both English and French. Montreal is the second largest primarily French-speaking city in the world, after Paris.

  4. Montreal is consistently rated as one of the world's most livable cities, was called "Canada's Cultural Capital" by Monocle Magazine and recently was named a UNESCO City of Design. Though historically the commercial capital of Canada, it was surpassed in population, as well as economic strength, by Toronto after 1976. Today it continues as an important centre of commerce, aerospace, finance, pharmaceuticals, technology, design, culture, tourism, film and world affairs.

  5. People of European ethnicities formed the largest cluster of ethnic groups in Montreal. The largest reported European ethnicities in Montreal according to the 2006 census were French 23%, Italians 10%, Irish 5%, English 4%, Scottish 3%, and Spanish 2%. Some 26% of the population of Montreal and 16.5% that of Greater Montreal, are members of a visible minority (non-white) group. The most numerous minorities are Blacks (4.7%), Arabs (2.8%), Latin Americans (2.1%), South Asians (2%), and Chinese (2%). Visible minorities are defined by the Canadian Employment Equity Act as "persons, other than Aboriginals, who are non-Caucasian in race or non-white in colour."

  6. As a North American city, Montreal shares many cultural characteristics with the rest of the continent. It has a tradition of producing both jazz and rock music. The city has also produced much talent in the fields of visual arts, theatre, music, and dance. Yet, being at the confluence of the French and the English traditions, Montreal has developed a unique and distinguished cultural face. Another distinctive characteristic of Montreal culture life is to be found in the animation of its downtown, particularly during summer, prompted by cultural and social events, particularly festivals. The city's largest festival is the Just for Laughs comedy festival, which is the largest in the world of its kind. Other popular festivals include the Montreal International Jazz Festival, Montreal World Film Festival, Les FrancoFolies de Montréal, Nuits d'Afrique, Pop Montreal, and the Montreal Fireworks Festival.

  7. Montreal lies at the confluence of several climatic regions and enjoys four distinct seasons. Usually, the climate is classified as humid continental or hemiboreal. Montreal's summers are warm, at times hot and humid, with average high temperatures of (79 °F) and low of (61 °F); temperatures frequently exceed (86 °F). Winter in Montreal usually brings very cold, snowy, windy, and, at times, icy weather, with an average high temperature of (23 °F) and low of (9 °F). However, some winter days rise above freezing, even allowing for rain at times, while others dip well below (-4 °F)

Looking for women to participate in my performance Sweep


- The piece looks at our relationship to land and nation. I made the first performance of Sweep when I visited Nigeria for the first time. I was thinking a lot about questions of homeland, belonging, memory and the archive (what is left behind). For this piece, we will carry vessels filled with dirt which is then emptied onto the ground. We will make a series of body impressions (hand, feet, lying down, etc) into the dirt, sweeping the dirt clean between each marking. At the end of the performance we will put the dirt back into the vessels and walk away from the space.

Details:

We will meet on Tuesday, June 24 at 2:30pm at Place D'Youville which is a few blocks from Centre PHI. The performance begins at 4pm.

There will be a tech Rehearsal (suggested, but not required) on Monday, June 23 at 2:00pm at Place D'Youville. It would be great if you could make it to the rehearsal but if not, it's totally fine. You will have a chance to see the space and materials on Tuesday when we meet at 2:30pm.

The performance is part of the trio of works that begins at 4pm at Place D'Youville:

Sweep by Wura-Natasha Ogunji
Sable International by Rosamond S. King
Fugue (Da, Montréal) by Gabrielle Civil -

black/african american special events


Greetings/Bonjour! I am writing to you to invite the community to three performances taking place this month.




My name is Rosamond S. King (www.rosamondking.com), and I am a performance artist, writer, and book artist of African and Caribbean descent. I’m based in Brooklyn, New York, USA, and on Tuesday, 24 June, 2014 I will be performing Sable International as part of the Encuentro performance art festival (schedule at http://hemisphericinstitute.org/
hemi/en/enc14/schedule-of-events)
sponsored by the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics.

While the Encuentro focuses on work by artists from around the Americas, my performance will be part of a sequence that particularly showcases three back-to-back pieces by black women artists.

Wura-Natasha Ogunji (www.wuraogunji.com) will perform Sweep at the Place-d'Youville at about 4pm; my piece (www.rosamondking.com), will begin at the same place at about 4:30, and Gabrielle Civil (https://sites.google.com/
site/gabriellecivil2/)
will begin her piece Fugue (Da, Montréal) on the St. Jean/Notre Dame corner at about 5pm.

We would love to have local people come see our work (and actually, Wura is looking for a few local women to perform with her!). So please feel free to post this information on your website, or to forward this email.

Please feel free to email me about any of this; more information about the Encuentro is on their website and will be available at the Centre PHI starting 21 June.

Best wishes,
Rosamond King
