Singuliers Pluriels

In elementary and secondary schools in Quebec:

One in ten students was born outside of Canada;
One in five students was born in Canada with at least one parent born elsewhere;
One in five students speaks a language other than French with their family.
All of these students, and many more, have a multicultural identity. They build their identity within our schools, among other socialization spaces.

Deliberately playing with the apparent opposition of terms, the title of the Singuliers Pluriels program evokes the singularity of each individual who, in addition to his or her plural affiliations (according to interests, gender, sexual orientation, etc.) may have multicultural origins, with parents or ancestors coming from Ireland, Italy, Haiti, France, China, the Philippines or elsewhere in the world...

As part of the 2021-2024 Youth Action Plan, Nous sommes le Québec, le Québec c'est nous, the Ministère de l'Éducation is responsible for the measure Soutien à la création artistique sur les identités pluriculturelles. Singuliers pluriels is part of this measure, and Culture pour tous has been mandated by the Ministry for its implementation.

Call for applications

Artists between the ages of 18 and 30 with multicultural backgrounds are invited to submit applications for the development of a cultural mediation workshop that could eventually be offered to high schools. The goal of this workshop will be to provide a space for expression in which students can explore the different facets of their identity. It will also promote dialogue, intercultural rapprochement and reflection on multiple cultural affiliations through art.

Singuliers Pluriels will provide financial support, in the form of $1500 scholarships, as well as accompaniment to a maximum of fourteen (14) emerging artists, from across Quebec.
