In anticipation of the opening of the Michel de la Chenelière International Atelier for Education and Art Therapy in late 2016, the MMFA is developing innovative research projects with partners in health care and art therapy to assess the impact of a Museum visit, studio practices and even employment reintegration in the healing or rehabilitation process. In the area of autism spectrum disorder, the Museum is working in partnership with Concordia University on pilot projects with the Miriam Foundation, Les Petits Rois, Giant Steps and École Irénée-Lussier. And, a world first, Education and Community Programmes at the Museum has added two employees to its team, one with autism and the other with an intellectual disability.
