Since 2002, LEVIER has supported Community Art and Creative Humanist Activism projects in response to proposals from individuals and groups dealing with a wide array of concerns. LEVIER’s desire to nurture the conditions within which individuals could bring significant change to their own lives will continue to guide this new initiative. Added to this is the will to implicate a greater socio-cultural, economic, and political intentionality related to just and sustainable resource sharing and peaceful coexistence.
Agir par l’imaginaire is a project for artistic creation in prisons, encouraging a collaboration between artists and women caught up in the criminal justice system.
Homeless Nation is an initiative that encourages the homeless to share their points of view by providing them with the necessary tools of multimedia production.
The Wapikoni Mobile is a travelling audiovisual and music training studio intended for young First Nations people.
