Cultural Corridor | Follow the Path to Find Treasures from South West to Old MTL

Cultural Corridor

Montreal’s vibrant “artbeat” has found its newest rhythm in the form of Follow the Path – the brainchild of the CULTURAL CORRIDOR initiative. A journey through the city’s southwestern district, this project highlights Montreal’s artistic tapestry, converging in Old Montreal, Griffintown and Little Burgundy.

Follow the Path draws on the city’s rich mosaic of artists, artisans and creative venues. Supported by MR-63 and PHI, this scheme extends the creative pulse of the city from institutions into the streets, involving local merchants in its outreach.

A collective of over ten cultural entities stands at the core of this eclectic enterprise. From Arsenal Contemporary Art Montreal and Galerie Blouin Division to Fonderie Darling and PHI Centre, they provide a remarkable amalgamation of creativity and local flair. The result? A cultural feast, promising a wealth of encounters with visual and digital arts, immersive experiences, music and public art installations.

Caserne Studio has crafted a colourful system of blue and orange stickers, a playful beckon guiding the explorers through this 2.3 km path. Weaving down William and Ottawa Streets in Griffintown, the stickers create a lively trail to follow, a testament to the project’s intention to encourage wandering and engagement.

Furthermore, the Corridor bursts to life with public artworks. Through the coordination efforts of MR-63, local talents, such as Alexis Vaillancourt, Lebonar and Thaïla Khampo, have transformed the cityscape, their art giving Griffintown a new cultural, inclusive and greener identity.

Looking towards the end of the year, the CULTURAL CORRIDOR promises an abundance of artistic encounters. With a rich program of events, the Corridor will not merely exist but thrive, allowing Montrealers and tourists to immerse themselves in a lively artistic ecosystem.
