Outaouais Live! is a 12-part, English-language, arts magazine format series to be filmed at various locations throughout the Outaouais. It will showcase musicians, artists of various practice, galleries, and cultural and performance spaces, all with a somewhat uptown vibe. An episode highlights one musical act, which will open and close the show – in between, the viewer is introduced to visual or other artists, in their home studios, a gallery, or another cultural space.
