A collaboration with the Paul-Gérin-Lajoie d’Outremont High School

Pouvoir is the result of a collaboration between the team at Paul-Gérin-Lajoie d’Outremont High School (PGLO)—Mélissa Lefebvre, drama teacher, Nathalie Vézina, French teacher for recently emigrated young students—and the PHI Foundation. 

Taking as their starting point a creative activity related to the exhibition RELATIONS: Diaspora and Painting, Nathalie, Mélissa and their students created a multi-faceted project consisting of drawings, texts, posters and the powerful and moving short documentary film Pouvoir, directed by Paul Tom and presented in this mini-exhibition.
