Nature-inspired dynamic culture
Another highlight of our visit has to be the region's dynamic culture and its emphasis on the arts.
In Matagami, we also met Stéfanie, an artist who has settled in the Jamésie region. The North has been a true revelation for Stéfanie, who now devotes herself full time to her art, drawing inspiration from her natural surroundings.
In Chibougamau, we had an opportunity to appreciate the extent of the region's artistic talent during our visit to the Christmas market, where we met the luminous Emmanuelle Gendron. Emmanuelle was a tattoo artist and painter in Québec City before she fell in love with the landscapes of Baie-James and moved to the region with her family.
