Group Visits and Workshops

In compliance with public health regulations announced on September 28, 2020, the Foundation’s physical spaces will be temporarily closed from October 1—28, 2020 inclusive. 

However, you can still have access to our exhibition RELATIONS: Diaspora and Painting through our online educational programming, which can be adapted to your situation and needs.

CEGEPs and Universities

Throughout October, we invite you to book a time slot for a 60-minute online discussion with one of our educators through a videoconference platform of your choice. Educators will lead a discussion with the students while showing images of the artworks and of the various spaces from the exhibition RELATIONS: Diaspora and Painting.

This online presentation could serve as preparation for an on-site visit to the exhibition RELATIONS: Diaspora and Painting once it reopens. We are currently taking reservations.

1) Group Visits of the Exhibition RELATIONS: the Diaspora and Painting

Firstly, we invite your students to come and visit the exhibition RELATIONS: Diaspora and Painting, in accordance with the preventative measures established by the government. This can take place during the students’ free time, or during class time. If you come during class time, you must make a reservation by writing to [email protected] or by calling 514 866-6767, ext. 4219. Visiting the exhibition takes between an hour and an hour and a half. Please take note of our opening hours.

Educational tools before and during the visit

We offer a variety of online documents to help you prepare for your visit: the virtual tour of the exhibition by our curator Cheryl Sim; the exhibition pamphlet with an essay by curator Cheryl Sim; the educational tool Movements: RELATIONS, which includes essays and video clips on major themes of the exhibition; and the RELATIONS reading list.

In addition, during your visit, we invite you to listen to the RELATIONS audioguide and to use the live mediation service offered by our team of visitor experience coordinators.

2) Online Discussions with our Educators Following the Visit

Approximately one week after visiting the exhibition, we invite you to book a 60-minute online discussion with one of our educators via a videoconference platform of your choice (Zoom, Google Meet or other). With the help of images of the artworks and exhibition spaces of RELATIONS: Diaspora and Painting, we will lead a discussion on the students' experience of the visit. Another option is for you to lead your own discussion with your students, supported by our online educational tools.

To reserve an online discussion, please contact us at [email protected] or call us at 514 866-6767 ext. 4219. 

Elementary Groups 

With the objective of raising students’ awareness of the art of the diaspora, we invite you to reserve a time slot for a 45-minute online discussion with one of our educators via a videoconference platform of your choice (Zoom, Google Meet or other). The discussion will focus on our Family Kit that accompanies our exhibition RELATIONS: Diaspora and Painting. As a gift, we will offer an activity book to each student.

High School Groups 

With the goal of raising students’ awareness of the art of the diaspora, we invite you to reserve a time slot for a 60-minute online discussion with one of our educators through a videoconference platform of your choice (Zoom, Google Meet or other).

A Common Imagination Creative Workshop

Specific to each exhibition and developed in collaboration with Montreal artists, our workshops aim to deepen the experience of the works in the gallery through creation. During the post-visit online discussion, you will have the opportunity to have a presentation of the creative workshop A Common Imagination designed by the artist Michaëlle Sergile. You will then be able to do a creative activity inspired by the workshop with your group at a later time.
