October 24th to November 14th : France | Germany | Norway
Montréal, October 2016
I will be part of a delegation from Québec that will take part in a youth conference organized by the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie, in Paris, under the them of "Living Together". I will have the occasion to share with 300 other participants from all over the world, the results and lessons learned from my "Americano" photo documentary project. It is an opportunity also for me to highlight the role of photography and the arts in building bridges between different cultures and to facilitate intercultural dialogue.
As I will already be in Europe, I will extend my stay in order to do a little tour of a few cities. My goal is to be able to share my travel experiences by giving presentations where I can share, through images and stories, my recent 11 month journey across the Americas, along with anecdotes from the various of people I've met, namely the 150 individuals from 18 countries who participated in my photo documentary project.
