From Roots to Leaves was a project for children and adults from immigrant backgrounds to discover painting and mime as a means of expressing their artistic creativity and life experiences. The project wants newcomers to have access to creative activities to get out of their isolation, discover community spaces (neighborhood organizations), make new acquaintances to promote their inclusion.
Project funded under the Montreal Cultural Development Agreement between the City of Montreal and the Government of Quebec.
