A new programming theme at the Biosphère
Located in the middle of the St. Lawrence River, between nature and the city, the Biosphère presents a new programming theme inspired by its immediate environment. Gathered under the idea of FLOWS, the exhibitions and events shed light on different movements: the migration of species (animals, humans, plants) whose trajectories and lifestyles are affected by the climate crisis; the flow of rivers and oceans that give rhythm to the archipelagos and the inhabitants of the riverbanks; and the pulse of nature, which is both a source of inspiration for its biodiversity and a source of concern in the face of the rising waters.
Through the image of incoming tides and collective displacements, the Biosphère's programming will explore different affluences: that of the circulation of beings, ideas and values, that of a world in motion and in constant change where adaptation is of a new magnitude.
