Dialogues Riopelle


Dialogues: Encounters with Riopelle’s Oeuvre from Sea to Sea

On the eve of celebrations for the 100th anniversary of Canadian artist Jean Paul Riopelle, the Riopelle Foundation is launching a vast, pan-Canadian cultural mediation project in partnership with Culture pour tous, made possible by generous support from the Government of Canada.

As part of the 100th anniversary of Riopelle’s birth, Jean Paul Riopelle Foundation and Culture pour tous are launching Dialogues: Encounters with Riopelle’s Oeuvre from Sea to Sea to offer Canadians the chance to (re)discover, understand and share this important part of our heritage. The program seeks to engage Canadians in a series of dialogues around the values of creative freedom, inclusion, cultural citizenship and the diversity of cultural practices and expressions.

In 2022-2023, the Dialogues program will provide financial support and personalized accompaniment to selected projects that, like Riopelle’s famous mosaics, will span across Canada from sea to sea, in each of its 13 provinces and territories.
