Unveiling of our latest artistic co-creation, produced as a part of the cultural mediation project Make your words dance!

The FQD cultural mediation department is pleased to share the co-creation of the project’s winter session with you: packs of sixteen Tarot-like cards, with illustrations created by the artist Sfiya and poems written by the participants!

 

Since 2019, the FQD has been collaborating with the organization Debout: Actes de parole to make this unique project happen, which keeps developing and evolving. Initiated and created with the desire to offer a fun approach to learning French to people who recently immigrated to Quebec, the project has opened multiple doors: the creation of encounters, the connection between two artistic disciplines, the encouragement of authentic and creative expression of the participants, and the discovery of poetry and contemporary dances.

 

At the end of each session, participants contribute to the creation of a small artistic project, in collaboration with a guest artist. This co-creation has an important symbolic value: it visibly documents a creative and a learning process as well as a shared sensitivity during the workshops. Sfiya, the guest artist of the winter session 2023, illustrated the most beautiful moments as well as the poetic essence of the project. Her illustrations were paired with the participants’ writings, which gave rise to the cards that were distributed to the participants.

 

Thank you to our collaborating artists for the winter 2023 session, Sarah Khilaji, Estelle Lavoie, Marie-Paule Grimaldi and Sfiya!

Thanks to all our project partners:

Project funded under the Agreement on the cultural development of Montreal between the City of Montreal and the Government of Quebec.
