Place des Arts

The Theatre Maisonneuve at the Place des Arts

The Theatre Maisonneuve at the Place des Arts will be home to the Conferences Plenary Sessions with the pre-Conference Workshops, lunch and Parallel Sessions across the street at the Hyatt Regency Hotel.

Théâtre Maisonneuve occupies the upper part of the Theatre Building, which was designed by Montreal architects David, Barott, and Boulva (Théâtre Maisonneuve and Théâtre Jean-Duceppe). The outdoor lighting was designed by Lightemotion as part of the lighting for the Quartier des spectacles.
Place des Arts sits at the heart of a cultural hub known as the Quartier des spectacles, a concentration of some 80 cultural venues, including 30 performance halls representing close to 28,000 seats over a one square kilometre area.

Over the past few years, Montréal’s cultural core has been undergoing a transformation to make room for this new Quartier des spectacles (work began in 2007 around Place des arts). The Place des Festivals, the Promenade des Artistes, the Parterre, and Sainte-Catherine Street West—one of North America’s most prominent commercial arteries—were redeveloped to attract urban passersby and invite them to make use of the facilities.

The Quartier is bordered by Sherbrooke Street, René-Lévesque Boulevard, and City Councillors and Saint-Hubert streets. The area is brimming with activity, thanks to the many international festivals held within it, including the Montréal International Jazz Festival, the FrancoFolies de Montréal, and the Just for Laughs Festival.

Montréal is well known for its vitality, friendliness, cultural effervescence, and creativity in the fields of performing arts, film, and design (Montréal UNESCO City of Design), just as it is in such recreational and cultural spheres as multimedia and the technological arts. With the redesign and development of the Quartier des spectacles, such qualities are brought to the fore.

A large part of the Quartier des spectacles covers Montréal’s former Red Light district, whose history dates back to the 1800s with the development of the Faubourg Saint-Laurent, to the north of the fortified city. The neighbourhood was partially destroyed during the great fire of 1852, going on to become almost entirely urbanized around the mid-1870s.
