Cultural Media
Every year, FestiBlues incorporates cultural mediation projects into their programming in order for people to discover the beauty of blues music and to encourage the public’s participation in the cultural life of their environment. Since its creation, the festival creates opportunities for meetings between the performing artists and the public.  From the Danse en Blues project to introductory workshops on the harmonica, there is something fun for everyone. These activities are open to all, while others are aimed at elementary or high school students.


To continue with last year’s project, the Slam Blues part of the festival has gathered intensity in 2015. The Québécois slammer, D-Track created workshops around Slam and orality art. 

The youths that participated in these workshops will performing on Saturday, August 14 at 6 pm as well as in the Ahuntsic Park during FestiBlues.

POÉSIE BLUES : Le Blues de l'homme invisible

For the fourth consecutive year, the FestiBlues, in collaboration with poets Claude Beausoleil and Maxime Nadeau, is organising a reading on Friday, August 7th from 5 to 7 at Café de Da. This event will be a tribute to the poet Patrice Desbiens. Read by the author and by other presenters. “Un blues tout croche” is poetry that is hyper realistic and social. A unique and uncompromising voice tackles “Les conséquences de la vie” with humour, critical thinking and emotion. Every day Blues described truthfully.
