Saint-Adelphe, September 7, 2021 — La Boîte interculturelle is pleased to announce that, thanks to funding from the Government of Canada and an incredible range of partners, we will be going on the road for a series of screenings across Quebec to present the documentary Mamu Ensemble Together.
Fifty (50) minutes long (available in French and English) Mamu Ensemble Together is the result of the project of the same name carried out in 2020/2021 in the community of Mani-utenam on the North Shore of Quebec and in the region of Mékinac in Mauricie.
At the heart of this project, three musicians—Shauit, Lasso and Saulo—and an ambassador-musician, Mishta-Shipu McKenzie. Together, they exchange with citizens on the use of music as a tool for dialogue in the fight against racism and the promotion of multiculturalism.
Each screening will be followed by a question period with the project curator, the musicians (subject to availability) and Suzie Yeo of Autrement d’ici (for some screenings).
To date, screenings are planned for the following regions: Mani-utenam (North Shore of Quebec), Mekinac, Bas-Saint-Laurent and Chaudières-Appalaches.
All screenings including dates, venues and times will be posted shortly on our Facebook page and our website.
La Boîte interculturelle is a passionate advocate for the power of sharing both individual and collective experiences. These acts nurture a greater understanding and appreciation of the similarities and differences between all communities – which we believe is the key to celebrating and promoting diversity.
Our approach is characterized and guided by three fundamental elements:
What distinguishes us from one another—our way of life, traditions and customs—but also something that can be shared with others.
An act imbued with the desire to share and learn from each other.
To become the facilitators of changes we wish to see around us
