Arts and Music
Our Day Centre offers an art workshop and a music studio.
What cannot be said in words, can sometimes be conveyed through music and art. The Accueil Bonneau studio is a meeting place for artists who would like to give free rein to their creativity. Leadership is provided for jam sessions, painting workshops, etc. Artistic creation in all its forms is often the only way to establish contact with the most marginalized street people and those who are not inclined to use social services.
Beyond regular activities, many special activities are developed by Accueil Bonneau and animated in collaboration with various partners to encourage exchanges, openness and communication with others.
Every Wednesday at 10 a.m., Exeko's mediators discuss with participants various subjects related to philosophy, living in community, etc.
On Tuesday, at the music studio, it's Karaoke time!
Thank you to Danielle Lafrenière, volunteer since 2008, making this activity possible for our clients.
