Here are a few memorable moments:

Topographies of Cultures

The workshop invites individuals to gather and converse around objects and testimonies in Innu and French which were collected by artist Raphaëlle de Groot during her immersive experience in the Mingan Archipelago. Participants then create a collective assemblage that is immortalized in a video. The objective of this workshop is to create a space for dialogue and intercultural encounters between indigenous and non-indigenous people in a spirit of inclusion and sharing.

Objects as Reflections of Self

The workshop introduces young publics to philosophical notions, inviting children to speak and develop their thoughts in relation with the concepts of identity, self-representation and sense of belonging. This philocreative activity stimulates the curiosity of young people towards contemporary image practices and encourages them to question their relationship to objects through the works of the Biennale.
