Description

The Michaëlle Jean Foundation is a Canadian non-profit organization that encourages communities to use art and creativity to stimulate and enhance citizen participation and dialogue with a particular emphasis on youth.

The objectives of the Foundation are, among others, to: raise awareness, and leverage the creative power of the arts to generate a more socially harmonious, civically engaged and innovative Canada; enhance collaborative linkages and networks connecting the arts and creative communities with other sectors of society; promote local and national initiatives to create a new discourse and branding around Canadian culture that better communicate the value of the arts and creativity to the broader public; and contribute to empowering youth and emerging artists in their efforts to use art as a tool to address challenges facing their neighborhoods and communities.

To achieve these ends, the Foundation will provide programming in the areas of creative communities, youth action and democracy. The programming will, thus, bring together support for community initiatives, discussion forums and the promotion of citizen participation through social media.
