Michaëlle Jean Foundation - Power of the arts Forum with french artists

October 07, 2015 | By francecanadaculture Canada

The third annual Power of the Arts National Forum will be held at Carleton University from November 6-8, 2015, with the presence of Jali, one of the singers and founders of Massilia Sound  System (Marseille / France).

This year’s theme will be Sustaining Social Change.

The Forum is co-organized by the Michaëlle Jean Foundation and Carleton University’s Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. It convenes researchers, business leaders, legal experts, policymakers, urban planners, architects, youth, health practitioners, artists, and representatives of other key sectors of Canadian society.

The main objectives of the Forum are to reinforce a Pan-Canadian and multi-sector network of researchers, practitioners and organizations using the arts as tools for social change and to enhance an action plan reinforcing national, regional and local initiatives using the arts to improve the quality of life in underserved communities.

The participants at the 2013 and 2014 Forums drafted national arts for social change action plans, which will serve as the basis for deliberations at the 2015 Forum. National Power of the Arts Action Plan
