According to UNESCO, culture may now be regarded as the set of distinctive spiritual, material, intellectual and emotional features that characterize a society or social group.
It encompasses, in addition to art and literature, lifestyles, fundamental rights of the human being, value systems, traditions and beliefs – and that culture gives man the ability to reflect on himself.
It is culture that makes us specifically human beings: rational, critical and ethically committed. It is through culture that we discern values and make choices. It is through culture that man expresses himself, becomes aware of himself, recognizes his incompleteness, questions his own achievements, seeks untiringly for new meanings and creates works that transcend.
The Cultural policy is a commitment taken by the 20 mayors of the MRC des Laurentides that aims to create cultural activities to the whole sector of social, economic and environmental planning.
Adopted in October 2011, the Cultural policy joins the sidelines of the sustainable development strategy being implemented in the MRC des Laurentides.
