START YOUR PODCAST TRAIL CUISINE TON QUARTIER HERE   !

Through CUISINE TON QUARTIER: PODCAST TRAILS, ATSA explores the issues faced by refugees and immigrants, many of them artists, and by those who help them build a new home. In all, 82 interviews constituting profound and insightful testimonials. A window onto today’s diversified Québec. An invitation to take a thoughtful, attentive walk by following the signage associated with the audio trails in seven Montreal boroughs (with several suggested trails for each), and available for online listening.

 

There once was Cuisine ton quartier, a local project that forged ties, got tongues wagging and addressed issues related to migration. Cuisine ton quartier is the offspring of Cuisine ta ville, a major biennial event created and produced by ATSA on Montreal’s Place des Festivals to immerse the public – through art, cooking, testimonials and conferences – in a range of issues revolving around migration and cultural integration.  In 2020, Cuisine ta ville was all set to tour seven Montreal boroughs, but the pandemic changed things. The project has now evolved into a guided audio tour!

Seven boroughs have been selected within the framework of the Ville de Montreal’s territoires d’inclusion prioritaires (TIP) initiative for creating high-priority regions for the inclusion of culturally diverse people, the community outreach workers who support them and the artists who draw inspiration from their rich and highly personal life stories.

Each borough is attributed 12 to 16 podcast episodes lasting 6 to 35 minutes each. These bring messages of peace, of joy, of awareness. They contain stories of difficult life experiences, shared in all their authenticity – stories that inspire us to bravery and add to our collective wisdom.

To encourage you to experience your Montreal on the sites where the interviews were recorded, we selected one park per neighbourhood and we’ve attached signage to lampposts to indicate three different audio trails: one discussing community issues, another featuring the words of engaged artists, and a third with testimonials by neighbourhood residents. The trails will remain permanently in place in the following parks, and there will be a day officially devoted to group walks of the commented audio trails so everyone can discover this wondeful project!

 

WELCOME TO THE PARK

Henri Bourassa : Montréal-Nord
Pirandello : Saint-Léonard
Jarry :  Villeray–Saint-Michel–Parc-Extension
Marcelin Wilson : Ahuntsic–Cartierville
George Springate : Pierrefonds–Roxboro
Martin Luther King : Côte-Des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce
Painter : Saint-Laurent.

 

Instructions:

The project Cuisine ton quartier: parcours-balado podcast invites you to take an attentive and thoughtful stroll through the lives and issues of the refugees and immigrants who make up the social fabric of our Montreal neighbourhoods.

Listen to the testimonies of immigrants, community organizations, social workers, members of the host society and committed artists. Live the experience from your home or by going to the site, for a guided auditory tour, at your own pace, in immersion in the neighborhoods.

The 3 listening tours offer different profiles: community issues, artists' words and residents' testimonies. These three routes are offered to you in order to balance your listening time and the different types of speeches. Feel free to wander around while listening to the vignettes and soaking up the ambient sounds. Each location of our signage in the parks has been thought out according to the participants' comments and their profile.

In order to get to the heart of what our participants had to say, we decided to take you with us live into the atmosphere of the recordings! Like thought bubbles, listen to their words in their simplest expressions...

On the spot, simply take a picture of the QR code on the signage and let yourself be carried away by the testimonies of immigrants, the reflections of those who help them integrate and by the words of artists who are inspired by them!  Open your heart and ears and...enjoy!

The Dérivations project is an intimate moment of improvisation and dance composition between a passer-by and a performer from Ample Man Danse, initiated in a public space from different stories of immigration and citizen actions from ATSA Cuisine ton quartier podcasts. During the performances, the artist asks passers-by to suggest simple gestures that can be integrated into the dance, in addition to choosing the musical framework of the story in movement. Dérivations is an ephemeral, collective and spontaneous work, a dance that drifts into a creative territory where words are the motor of the gesture and the passerby is the inspiration.

We had the opportunity to present the Dérivations project in 4 boroughs of Montreal:

- Park Martin Luther King - Côte-des-Neiges-Notre-Dame-De-Grâce
- Park Henri-Bourassa - Montréal-Nord
- Park Painter - Saint-Laurent
- Park Geaorge-Springate - Pierrefonds-Roxboro
