La Boîte interculturelle is pleased to announce the support of the Canadian Race Relations Foundation.
Saint-Adelphe, Quebec – February 8, 2023 – La Boîte interculturelle is pleased to announce the support of the Canadian Race Relations Foundation for the consolidation of its efforts in relation to the project Weaving and Reweaving created in 2022.
With this support from the Foundation, La Boîte interculturelle will be able to plan the launch of the Rural Manifesto for Intercultural Rapprochement as well as the documentary for which the images were filmed in the regions of Chaudière-Appalaches, Centre-du-Québec, Bas-Saint-Laurent and the Eastern Townships.
By focusing on the use of tools developed in collaboration with communities, we wish to create new opportunities for exchange, activity and cooperation.
We hope that these initiatives will be a source of inspiration for all citizens and will contribute to finding constructive and creative solutions related to better living together.
This support comes at an opportune time and will allow us to continue our work while giving back to the communities with which we collaborated on this project. We hope that this support will contribute to the sustainability of intercultural dialogue in rural areas.Nathalie Lévesque, founder of La Boîte interculturelle
I am very happy that La Boîte was able to receive this funding in order to finalize this wonderful project called Weaving and Reweaving. My hope is that the myth that only newcomers need to integrate can change because integration happens on both sides.Othman Wahabi, musician and collaborator on the project
La Boîte interculturelle
La Boîte began its activities in 2018. Since then, several projects have been completed, including four international projects and five major projects in Quebec between 2019 and 2022. La Boîte’s work also includes the production of two documentaries, Cultural Resonance, premiered in Morocco at Visa for Music and Mamu Ensemble Together presented in eight communities across Quebec and three major cities in Morocco in the fall of 2022.
Our approach is characterized and guided by three fundamental elements:
- Culture – What distinguishes us from one another — our way of life, traditions and customs — but also something that can be shared with others.
- Exchange – An act imbued with the desire to share and learn from each other.
- Change – To become the facilitators of changes we wish to see around us.
