Queens Creation is an annual event taking place in Verdun in June on the Wellington Promenade, which celebrates the work and place of women in urban culture. Often associated with a male domain, urban culture increasingly includes women artists – in the visual arts, dance, and music. Queens Creation is, therefore, a meeting point to highlight the work of these women. During a weekend, several activities are offered to cover all areas of urban culture. Thus, an exhibition bringing together the works of about twenty visual artists is presented, a friendly competition of urban dance is organized and a free conference on the place of women in the urban culture opens the weekend. In addition to these activities, workshops are also offered free of charge to participants to familiarize themselves with and demystify aspects of urban culture. For example, at the last edition in 2016, a graffiti-specific lettering initiation workshop was offered, as well as a workshop on sugar art and an introductory workshop on urban style dance. breakdance. In addition, throughout the weekend, female DJs enliven the space and create the soundtrack for the event.
