101 Montcalm Gets a New Lease on Life this Summer

Gatineau, June 27, 2019. – Ville de Gatineau, in conjunction with the National Capital Commission (NCC), today inaugurated 101 rue Montcalm as the new home of l'Entre-Deux, a space for ephemeral artist workshops.

The project is the outcome of a collaborative effort between Ville de Gatineau, the NCC, Culture Outaouais and AXENÉO7, which teamed up to provide artists in the visual arts sector a creative hub right in the heart of the downtown area.

The building at 101 rue Montcalm, which has been integrated into the Culture Trail, will be open to residents and tourists following the red line, welcoming them to discover what will be the universe of artists over the next four months.


Quick facts

The l'Entre-Deux ephemeral artist workshop is an outstanding example of collaboration among partners sharing a common vision.
- Gatineau negotiated an agreement with the NCC, which owns the property, and Culture Outaouais and AXENÉO7, which are responsible for the programming.
L'Entre-deux will serve as a venue for research and creation by local artists throughout the summer.
- The outside of the building has been “spruced up” by artists, turning it into a lively and colourful point of reference.
- Ten or so artists will call 101 rue Montcalm their second home over the summer.
This project is in line with Gatineau's goal of turning the area into the downtown's culture pole.

“I am delighted by this initiative, on the one hand because it is the outcome of a joint effort by several partners intent on bringing this project to life, and on the other hand because it provides Gatineau artists with one more showcase to highlight their talent, creations and ambitions. L'Entre-Deux is located on the Culture Trail, and we will get to see firsthand its impact on the region's artistic community,” indicated Gatineau Mayor Maxime Pedneaud-Jobin.

“The National Capital Commission is very proud to partner with Ville de Gatineau, Culture Outaouais, and AXENÉO7 to host the new l'Entre-Deux ephemeral artist workshops on Gatineau's Culture Trail, a new place where the public will be able to discover activities uniting history, the arts, and the lively cultural community of Canada's Capital Region,” said NCC Chief Executive Officer Tobi Nussbaum.
