The UQAM Research Chair for the development of innovative practices in art, culture and well-being, the MMFA and the research group ArtEspaceSocial are hosting the international virtual conference Art as an Agent for Change: How do Art, Museum, and Education Practices Inspire Action? from May 31 to June 3.
This bilingual event will bring together more than 50 speakers from the community, the arts, and the education and health sectors to address various issues through talks, round tables and project presentations. Its goal is to foster discussion about artistic, museum and educational practices that combine art and the social participation of marginalized people, art and inclusive education, and art for improved mental and physical health from individual, collective and societal points of view.
The event will bring together key figures from the arts community, including Manon Barbeau, Hannah Claus, Stanley Février, Rhodnie Désir, Judith Marcuse, Kent Monkman, KeCindy Schwartz and Suzane Weber da Silva, among others.
