Uplands Cultural and Heritage Centre

Tourism Region: Eastern Townships

Uplands Cultural and Heritage Centre is a non-profit organization housed in an historic Lennoxville residence, devoted to the preservation, support and expansion of the cultural and historical traditions of the Eastern Townships.

The Centre serves as a meeting place and networking centre
for organizations and individuals intent on sharing the rich
and diverse heritage of its area. Through art exhibitions, craft shows, educational projects, lectures and workshops, its particular priorities are to support expressions of culture which are pluralistic, which are inter-generational and multi-cultural in nature, and which reflect the diversity of artistic approaches and craft traditions in the community.
