Place Publique 2014

For the eighth year in a row, the Darling Foundry expands its activities outdoors by occupying the Ottawa street between Queen and Prince streets. During the summer 2014, the Darling Foundry's ephemeral Place Publique has been very busy with artistic performances, readings, workshops, poetry readings, live DJ music,... in addition to Variations, an original green composition by Jean-Paul Ganem. Thus, the Darling Foundry has changed again this street section into a gathering place for the local community and the artistitic community of the Greater Montréal. At the end of the season, the terrace bar of the Darling Foundry has created a living space where pleasure and reflection meet in a district without any federative places.
