    Les arts et la culture ont été des véhicules importants pour exprimer les opinions et partager une solidarité lors de cette grève panquébécoise, par le fameux carré rouge, à présent symbole par excellence de ce mouvement, aux belles bannières qui animent les manifestations de rue tous les soirs, et les milliers d'artistes qui participent activement dans le mouvement.

  3. Intervention créative au Festival international de Jazz de Montréal
    En face de la station de métro Saint-Laurent

    On the streets of Montreal art played a major role in the 2012 Quebec student uprising that sparked a mass social movement. From the symbolism of the red square to the critical role that cultural workers played in articulating not only the demands of striking students but exploring the more esoteric dreams that in many ways were the emotional fuel of the mass protests. On the streets the red square or red flag became not just a symbol but an artistic canvass on which we expressed our individual and collective dreams.

    École de la Montagne Rouge's work on the strike was both inspiring and ground breaking, a testament to the burning creativity that is unleashed in the heat of a mass social uprising. From a florescent light lit class room at UQAM the École launched a project of imagery and poster art that built on long standing traditions of posters within social movements, specifically referencing Paris 68, while also creating a project that will without question stand as one of the collective, autonomous projects that expressed the beauty of Quebec's 2012 uprising not only against moves by the Liberal government to hike tuition but also against the neo-liberal order.

    Howl! arts collective collaborated with École de la Montagne Rouge for a creative intervention at the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal in July, after the Liberals had imposed Law 78 and locked out striking students from college and university campuses. Our collaboration aimed to take over public space in a creative way, to reclaim in a couple hours our collective commons in the center of Montreal where thousands gathered to join a globally celebrated Jazz festival that has been overtaken by corporate funding and capitalist logic of "tourism".

    Our direct artistic action included live silk screening by École de la Montagne Rouge who created a beautiful poster inspired by the Rêve Général Illimité theme. While activists from École printed on location at metro St. Laurent local musicians played music, artists engaged the crowds in street theater and hundreds joined to show our collective defiance to the militarization of public space via Law 78 and also our support as artists toward a historic uprising in Quebec that has reshaped a generations ability to dream beyond the realm of cynical power politics of politicians driven by capitalist economics and consider our endless dreams of a different tomorrow rooted in our struggles today.

  4. Duets for Abdlerazik

    featuring Stefan Christoff on piano, Rebecca Foon on cello, Radwan Moumneh on buzuq, Peter Burton on contrabass, Norman Nawrocki on violin and Sam Shalabi on oud.

    Duets for Abdelrazik is a cultural project aiming to express musical solidarity for the ongoing struggle of Abousfian Abdelrazik, a Sudanese-Canadian jailed on the recommendation of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) in Sudan. It is difficult to describe in words both the horror of torture but also the sustained determination sustained by Abdelrazik in the struggle for justice. In music great Montreal artists recorded Duets for Abdelrazik in an attempt to illuminate Abdelrazik’s struggle
