Cultural school day

June 01, 2023School and P’tit BonheurHearing-impaired inclusion specialFree

Like at each festival edition, the school students benefit from the various masked activities, adapted to their age, at attractive prices. This 8th edition is no exception. As well as performances by Josepha Lauth Thomsen (Greenland) and Horta van Hoye (Belgium/Canada), the traditional Ivorian dance show, the guided tour of exhibits and a roundtable discussion reuniting our foreign artists, the kids will have the opportunity to take part in unusual activity during our event. 

In fact this year, in partnership with the Association des Sourds de l’Estrie, we have the privilege of welcoming two Québec artists, deaf from birth, Marie-Pierre Petit and Jacques Hamon, otherwise called Pafoli and Jaclo. Furthermore, the children from Christ-Roi school of Saint-Camille will spend a good part of the day alongside  children of the same age with hearing impairments and their accompanists. A good opportunity to share and exchange to better get to know and understand one another, and make hearing impaired culture accessible.
