I would like to know why it is said that there was a renewal in Quebec’s culture during the Quiet Revolution?
Thank you :)

Good evening TomateSupra 7536!
During the Quiet Revolution, several subsidies were granted to help artists financially. This funding allowed a revival of the culture as many Quebecers came together around different arts, such as theater, music, painting, literature, etc.
Gilles Vigneault’s song “Mon pays”, which refers to Quebec as a country, is an example of an artist singing his love for the province and identity as Quebecer.
The famous play “Les belles soeurs” by Michel Tremblay was written completely in “Joual”, the language of the Quebecers, allowing them to identify with it.
In addition to these artistic subsidies, the government invested in venues for the presentation of these arts, such as theaters.
Hope that answers your question! Do not hesitate to rewrite us! :)
