« Si j’étais la mer »

The objective of the Si j’étais la mer… project was to generate meetings and exchanges between the school community, the artist Céline Goudreau and the writer Marie-Belle Ouellet. 6th grade students from the Normandy school and their teacher Marie-Pierre Provencher experimented printmaking, ink drawing, collage and poetry. They made a collective mural, prints and an artist’s book by integrating the poem they wrote. Thanks to the agreement between the city of Longueuil and the government of Quebec.

À ma santé! Une éclaircie en temps de pandemie is a cultural mediation project in the health sector, carried out in 2021 in collaboration with the organization Action-Services aux proches aidants de Longueuil (ASAPAL). Fostering reflection on the experiences of caregivers and artistic experimentation, artistic workshops were offered to caregivers. Over the course of the meetings, they were led to create an artist’s book, reflecting their personal experience, particularly in relation to their relationship with their loved one, the emotions that inhabit them, their isolation in times of pandemic, the difficulties encountered in their role and the benefit of their experience. This artist’s book has become for each caregiver a bit like a roadmap relating their experience. This project was made possible thanks to the cultural development agreement between the city of Longueuil and the government of Quebec.

In this project, we offered art workshops to students from Christ-Roi school in Longueuil. During these workshops, the students were led to make a puppet and create a fresco. Teaching artist Cathy Jolicoeur oversaw the entire project. Visual artist Céline Goudreau supervised the creation of the fresco by the students. Puppeteer Noémi Bélanger supervised the making of the puppets. Thanks to the Ministry of Culture and Communications of Quebec.
