The MRC Brome-Missisquoi publishes an Atlas and a web series on our landscapes

The MRC Brome-Missisquoi has unveiled its book, “ATLAS DES PAYSAGES, clés de compréhension et d’action sur le paysage régional” (Atlas of Landscapes, keys to understanding and acting on the regional landscape) the first of its kind at the level of an MRC in Quebec. This rich document, produced by the Les Mille Lieux cooperative, takes stock of our regional and local landscapes from a social, historical and geographical perspective, to make it a tool for action and reflection in the decision-making process of cultural, tourist, planning or development projects. The book can be viewed and downloaded online at: https://mrcbm.qc.ca/common/documentsContenu/Atlas%20des%20Paysages%20de%20Brome-Missisquoi.pdf.

A web-series in five episodesIn addition, the MRC also presents the “Paysages en série” (Landscapes series) project. The five-episode web series showcases each of the five major landscapes characterized in the Atlas: Basses-terres du Saint-Laurent, Piedmont des Appalaches, Barres et sillons appalachiens, Mont Brome and Massifs appalachiens. Sutton’s artist, Stéphane Lemardelé, and his multidisciplinary team travelled through our territory to immortalize residents and landscapes with the help of drawings and videos. The results are magnificent illustrations and images in which we can see several notable residents, such as author Louise Penny and artist Raoul Duguay. The first two episodes are already online. Sutton’s landscapes feature in the 5th episode, about the Massifs appalachiens, to be released on December 3rd. The full series is available at the link: http://paysagesenserie.com/.
