The PHI Foundation, in collaboration with Productions Onishka, presents a mediation program to contextualize the Marguerite: la pierre soundwalk. The program consists of two guided tours and a roundtable discussion.

Led by artist Émilie Monnet, Marguerite: la pierre is based on the life of Marguerite Duplessis, the first person to be enslaved in New France and the first Indigenous person to have subsequently fought legally for her freedom. While traces of this past still mark the stone facades of Old Montréal, Émilie Monnet’s voice and those of four invited guests, take us through an encounter with Marguerite Duplessis and our history.

During this roundtable discussion, Émilie Monnet talks about her creative process in the company of Simon Riverin and Philippe Néméh-Nombré.
