We returned to Montreal just on time to participate in the Mile End neighbourhood project organised by Trixie Dumont for children to have access to public cultural space. This experience gave the children the feeling of having contributed their point of view on their world in a meaningful way. During each session, children and adults gathered together to practise a new art technique and the pieces of art from all the sessions formed the exhibit �My Neighbourhood, My Museum�, shown at the Museum of Fine Arts in Montreal from June 23rd to September 15th 2007.

We believe that information, knowledge, and art should be accessible for all. Behind every story, film, or essay, there are lives and people who gave their time, effort and resources to share with you ideas and quests. Texts and images are sold for money in the form of journals, books, DVDs, etc. and it is considered legitimate. We invested much of ourselves into this site and hope that it resonated with you. If you enjoyed reading our work, if it brought you something, inspired, enlightened or helped clarify things for you, please, show your appreciation by supporting it.
