ATSA, quand l'Art passe à l'Action

Place des festivals

May 9 to 12, 2019






Kitchen parties inside the tents are an opportunity to engage in dialogue, share memories and recall our arrival in Montréal, while preparing and savouring a soup or other traditional dish.  

Come spend an hour with immigrant and refugee people from all around the world who will lead our kitchen parties! More than 40 kitchen parties and 25 nationalities represented to better understand each other and break together the silos of comprehension.

The kitchen is the place of conviviality and sharing par excellence. Our hosts will welcome you in their kitchen under the shelter for an hour, to share a moment of encounter and discussion around their migration journey. They will tell you about the challenges they overcame during it and those yet to come when arrived in Quebec.
