Call for Proposals: 2018 Power of the Arts Forum (Michaëlle Jean Foundation, Canada-wide)
« The Michaëlle Jean Foundation and the Montréal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA) invite you to submit a proposal to deliver a presentation at the upcoming POWER OF THE ARTS FORUM: LEVERAGING THE ARTS AS WEAPONS FOR PEACE, which will take place February 16 to 18, 2018, at the Museum.
- Are you conducting research on the power of the arts, particularly tied to the relation between the arts and peace, the arts and health, the arts and urban planning, the arts and new economies, the arts and inclusion or the arts and democratic participation?
- Do you use the arts as tools to tackle major social issues: the prevention of homelessness, the empowerment of Black youth, justice and reconciliation with Indigenous peoples, inclusion of Muslim communities, the end of homophobia and transphobia, the integration of refugees, the struggle against violence against women, crime prevention and the prevention of extremisms.
If so, you have vital information and experiences to share with your peers coming from Quebec, the rest of Canada and abroad, and we invite you to submit a proposal. »
