La Boîte interculturelle in partnership with le Comité de solidarité de Trois-Rivières and host Suzie Yeo d’Autrement d’ici invite you to a virtual discussion entitled Escale Discussion – music as a tool for dialog. Do you believe in it?
Do you know that music facilitates contact, social interactions, and gives people a powerful alternative to express themselves? Music acts as a common language, across borders. It is with this in mind that the ZOOM virtual discussion of December 10, 2020 has been developed. It is our hope that this discussion can further the dialogue between cultures.
In these times of physical distancing, staying connected socially helps us increase our individual and collective resilience while continuing to forge positive and strong bonds with the community.
We look forward to welcoming you online on December 10!
