The Fondation Jean Paul Riopelle and Culture pour tous would like to highlight the culmination of several months’ work as part of the Dialogues Riopelle program. We are honoured to have been able to bring to fruition the encounters, discoveries, exchanges and dreams of artists and citizens from across Canada, all gathered around Riopelle’s work to celebrate his centenary.
The time has come to unveil the projects of our highly talented artist-mediators!
A series of interdisciplinary artistic events will take place across Canada.
This program is made possible with the support of the Government of Canada.
Artist-mediators and their winning projects from across Canada
Art, culture, community engagement, diversity and dialogue will be in the spotlight across Canada from June 1 to July 4.
