SHDM joins the Ville de Montréal to celebrate the opening of Maison de la culture Claude-Léveillée
Long awaited by the residents of the Villeray-Saint-Michel-Parc-Extension borough, the inauguration of Maison de la culture Claude-Léveillée took place last night. Located at 911 rue Jean-Talon Est, on the ground floor of the Centre Jean-Marie Gauvreau, this new cultural venue now offers a brand new 260-seat theater, a 220 m2 exhibition hall, a mediation room of 60 m2, a large foyer for the reception of visitors and spaces to house administrative offices. For the occasion, an evening tribute to Claude Léveillée was orchestrated and hosted by Monique Giroux. Guests were able to pay homage to this monument of Québec song, who grew up in this Montréal neighbourhood, with musical performances by Catherine Major, Daniel Lavoie, Pierre Flynn, Ingrid St-Pierre and Moran.
“I am proud of this recognition of Claude Léveillée and I am convinced that the new Maison de la culture dedicated to the memory of this great Montréal artist will be a crossroads of inspiring meetings, a place of synergy that will contribute to the cultural vitality of the Villeray-Saint-Michel-Parc-Extension borough. I also believe that this new venue, in addition to the already diversified cultural offer that is spreading throughout Montréal, will become an indispensable cultural meeting place for all Montrealers” said Valérie Plante, Mayor of Montréal.
Almost $6.4 million were invested in the development of this cultural amenity of which $1.2 million were paid by the borough and $5.1 million by the City’s central administration. Added to this is the investment of the Société d’habitation et de développement de Montréal (SHDM) as explained by Ms. Nancy Shoiry, Executive Director of the SHDM:
“The inauguration of the Maison de la culture Claude-Léveillée is a moment of great pride for our team who took charge of the management of this project for a new cultural venue. As part of this partnership with the City, the SHDM has invested $2.8 million in major works on this heritage building, which it owns, including $2 million specifically for the space dedicated to the Maison de la culture. This contribution demonstrates the significance of the SDHM’s role as a privileged partner of the Ville de Montréal in carrying out projects that contribute to Montréal’s social, cultural and economic development.”
Ms. Giuliana Fumagalli, Mayor of the Villeray-Saint-Michel-Parc-Extension borough, Ms. Christine Gosselin, responsible for culture, design and heritage on the Executive Committee of the Ville de Montréal, Ms. Isabelle Léveillée, representative of the Claude Léveillée’s family, as well as partners such as the architect of the project, Mr. Éric Gauthier of FABG architectural firm, also took part in this inauguration ceremony.
Montrealers will be able to discover their new Maison de la culture during the open house days that take place as of today and until Sunday, February 25. During their visit, they will also be able to appreciate one of the four luminous installations of Faisceaux d’histoire, a legacy of the 375th anniversary of Montréal created by ATOMIC3, the exterior artwork of artist Claude Lamarche, which has just been restored, as well as a work of art by Julie Favreau, this time installed in the lobby.
