Saison Québec – Pays Basque is a mutual exchange cultural and artistic programme that takes place in the larger cities in Quebec and the Basque Country. The aim is to open a window onto contemporary Basque culture and creation in Quebec and to highlight the work of Quebec creators in the Basque Country, thereby strengthening the relationship between the two regions through language, culture and art. The initiative is promoted by the Etxepare Basque Institute and the Quebec Ministry of Culture and Communication.
