Circus magic takes to the streets!

Ongoing, from 11 am to 4 pm

Meet circus artists… and become one yourself, if only for the day! Coinciding with the It’s Circus Time! exhibition, spontaneous performances, music, clowns, and juggling and balancing workshops await you all week long during the school break. In this joyful atmosphere, join your family in exploring the circus arts! Professional artists will be on hand to teach you a few circus skills you can then show off to your friends.

Also, take the opportunity to try out the Desjardins kaleidoscope! Take funny snapshots using the set of mirrors in this big mobile kaleidoscope set up in the street. Fun for the whole family and a great souvenir of your circus-themed day at Pointe-à-Callière!

Last chance to see It’s Circus Time!
On until March 6, this fun and colourful exhibition is an invitation to discover the fascinating history of the circus. Not to be missed!

Contribute to the “Mural of Hope”

Pointe-à-Callière has joined forces with Accueil Bonneau, which assists people experiencing homelessness, to offer its users a moment of creativity.

Joined by an artist, Accueil Bonneau users have created a collective work of art: a mural on which they have been invited to express themselves artistically, writing short messages of hope and sharing their vision of the neighbourhood. Come see the artwork, in front of the Museum during the school break, and add your own little message of hope. Once completed, the mural will be given to Accueil Bonneau.
