Merci à MTLCity pour m'avoir aiguillé sur le sujet!






It’s not a misspelling, but a mash-up, as Vermont PBS heads to downtown Montreal for a bit of cutting-edge Quebec culture.


Qulture, airing Friday, July 3rd at 8:30 p.m., takes a look at current arts and cultural happenings in Montreal, with hopes for becoming a more regularly broadcast feature on the station. It dips into the city’s street art and comedy scenes, along with a bit of vaudeville.


The half-hour program is being produced in partnership with Montreal’s weekly arts publication, CULT MTL. The pilot episode includes three stories:


Sugar Sammy. One of Quebec’s hottest comedians is a multi-lingual Indo-Canadian with a TV show, a popular stand-up act and a growing audience in two languages. Sugar Sammy is the first English-speaking comedian to win (twice) at Quebec’s prestigious Olivier comedy awards, for Best Show (voted by the industry) and Comedian of the Year (voted by the public) in 2013.


Street Art. Montreal’s street art scene is an ever-changing palette of graffiti, mural art and more. We’ll explore the evolution of the city’s street art and meet some of artists who make Montreal their canvas.


Vaudeville at The Wiggle Room. One of the city’s popular night spots features a Wednesday night vaudeville cabaret with a growing audience. The Wiggle Room’s Voix de Ville features burlesque dancers, musicians, comedians and more.


Says program producer, Dorothy Dickie, “Montreal’s artistic community is so vibrant, and it’s been an exhilarating experience to be able to share even this small portion of it with our Vermont PBS audience. I believe this is just the beginning of an increased level of collaboration and cultural understanding with our Quebec neighbors. Over time, we hope to be telling more and more of these stories.”


In addition to its broadcast premiere on July 3, the program is being pre-released online, at vermontpbs.org. It will also enjoy rebroadcasts July 4 and 5 at 4:30 p.m., as well as numerous airings on the station’s second HD channel, Vermont PBS PLUS. Schedule information can be found on the station’s website.


Qulture is produced with support from the Miriam Aaron Roland Canadian Content Fund, helping Vermont PBS increase its commitment to Canadian and cross-border programming.


Vermont PBS is Vermont’s statewide public media provider. Vermont PBS PLUS is the station’s second HD channel, launched in 2014. It’s available over the air and on most cable outlets in Vermont and Montreal. More information about Vermont PBS is available at vermontpbs.org.

Le Vermont c'est comme une banlieue de Montréal en quelques sortes. Pour eux Montreal est la plus grosse ville a proximité.


C'est sûr!

Et du coup l'aéroport de Burlington me dérange moins. Je dirais que c'est un bon échange. Les québécois profitent d'un aéroport à bas prix en plus de ne pas se taper les douanes d'aéroport et en échange le Vermont fait la promotion de Montréal, de la culture de notre ville et nous envoie des touristes.
