Martin Hurtubise has been a cultural worker at the City of Montreal since 1994. Since 2007, he has been working on the Hors Les Murs programme in the Villeray-Saint-Michel-Parc-Extension borough, which seeks to bring people and cultures together. It earned the 2011 Prix RIDEAU/XM Canada prize in the “Initiative” category, and was used as an example of exemplary programs in City of Montreal communications networks. He sat on the committee for reflection on intercultural understanding in the arts, an initiative started by the Montreal Arts Council, as well as sitting on the board of directors of Musique Multi Montréal, La Ligne Bleu, numerous cultural networks, and RIDEAU. His goal is to create interest in cultures within a diverse clientele and throughout the city.
