A dazzling digital block party at the Mile End Skatepark for the 6th edition of MAPP_MTL 2021
 

For its 6th edition, MAPP_MTL, Montreal's projection mapping festival, is transforming the Mile End Skatepark into a digital block party for the residents of the neighborhood and its surroundings.




The program includes the illumination of the iconic and majestic St-Lawrence warehouse by artist Delphine Dussoubs aka Dalkhafine, and the presentation of 60-second creations on the facade of the equally iconic Million Carpets and Tiles store by local and international creators.

 




Participatory component: See works improvised by creators and members of the public unfold in real-time on the ceiling of the Van Horne Viaduct.


The party will feature live electronic music by artists such as Gustafson and Gayance.

To whet your taste buds, Nakamichi Restaurant will be serving karaage (Japanese fried chicken) and delicious pastries. Take the time to discover various local merchants highlighted in the small shopping area including the renowned microbrewery Dieu du ciel!



The opening ceremony on Thursday, September 23 will be hosted by festival spokesperson Geneviève Borne.





"I'm thrilled to once again be the ambassador of MAPP_MTL, a festival that delights me on so many levels! With its way of sublimating our environments, of making projection-mapping accessible to all and of making us discover the audacious artists of this emerging digital discipline, MAPP_MTL will once again blow us away!"
