The Quartier des Spectacles, along the east end of Saint-Catherine Street, is an area with a large concentration of cultural and performance venues such as Place des arts, as well as the site of numerous large festivals, including the International Jazz Festival and Just For Laughs. The area is currently undergoing a revilization initiative: “to provide Montrealers with an exceptional living environment, while consolicdating its status as an international cultural destination”. Urban Forum will highlight how these efforts have been mobilized by a unique non-profit organisation, the Quartier des spectacles Partnership, and explore its applicability to thematic area renewal in Ottawa.
