Saison Québec - Pays basque 2021 - 2022
Euskara. Kultura. Mundura.
The relationship between Quebec and Euskadi goes back a long way. The connection, which began five centuries ago with Basque whalers, is still alive today.
Quebec and the Basque Country also share a common vision when it comes to protecting cultural and linguistic diversity, delivering on innovation, safeguarding the environment, and tackling climate change.
Saison Québec-Pays basque 2021-2022 will serve to highlight our excellent creative talent, collaborate between the cultural professional of Quebec and Euskadi, encourage the exchange of artists, creators and cultural industries, and strengthen collaboration between the two nations.
Directed by the Etxepare Basque Institute and the Ministry of Culture and Communications of Quebec, the project will be reciprocal: Basque artists and creators will show their work in Quebec and artists from Quebec will do the same in Euskadi.
