Who we are

  • Created in 2018, La Boîte interculturelle is a non-profit organization located in Quebec, Canada. Its main mission is to create bridges between communities by offering favourable conditions for creation and dialogue. We do not sell services, we create unique experiences of exchange, sharing in collaboration with artists and partners wishing to strengthen ties and forge new ones between communities.

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.
