Musée de la Civilisation

As part of the « La semaine Internationale de La Francophonie and the centenary of the First World War, more than 250 young people from the Marguerite-Bourgeoys and the Capital school boards gathered in Montreal and Quebec City to reflect on the challenges of peace, particularly through artistic expression.

Following the work initiated as part of the “Cartooning for Peace and Democracy” Programme funded by the European Union, the exhibition “Cartooning for Peace and Democracy in Quebec” was presented from March 20 to 24 at the Musée de la civilisation in Quebec City. It was enriched by the achievements of the young people who took part in the workshops organized by Cartooning for Peace and Vision et Diversité in early 2019.

Having benefited from the support of the press cartoonists involved in the project, the young people were thus able to express their vision of peace through press cartoons.

The following video highlights the richness of the exchanges in French:
