Documenting and celebrating living traditions

The Conseil québécois du patrimoine vivant and Action patrimoine organized a video competition with the theme of living traditions for young people from 12 to 17 years of age. The contest was designed to introduce young people to the different aspects of our living traditions (practices, techniques, expressions, etc.) and to share this vision with the public at large. The objective is to understand living heritage and its importance in Québécois culture, to meet those practicing these traditions in each region or neighbourhood and to inspire curiosity and interest in Québec traditions while learning how to produce a video. The result is intended to bring to light an element of a living tradition : music, storytelling, song, dance, oral traditions, artisanal techniques, ancestral activities, celebrations or local customs, etc.

The contest was made possible thanks to the support of the Ministère de la Culture et des Communications du Québec.
