Launched by Quartier Éphémère, Visual Arts Center, and Vaste et Vague Artist Center in fall 2021, the Gare de Matapédia – Artistic and community center takes place in the heart of the life of the municipality of Matapédia, in a nature as grandiose as it is inspiring. This contemporary visual arts project highlights local heritage while opening up to the world. It integrates artist residencies, exhibition spaces, arts activities, open studios and services offered by community organizations. It aims to create a meeting place, to bring art closer to communities and to offer a space for creation outside metropolitan areas to Quebec artists, and an influence in urban areas for Gaspesian artists.
