This year’s edition of Parle-moi d’amour marks the second time the MAC has hosted the event.
“Visitors to the museum will be lucky to have access to an additional exhibit for free, a one-of-a-kind exhibit with pieces that cater to a variety of tastes,” says Laura Regev, BA 05, MA 10, a photographer by profession and workshop facilitator for Les Impatients.
Like Regev, Mélissa Sokoloff, MA 08, facilitates creative workshops for Les Impatients and also teaches art therapy at Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue (UQAT). She’s been involved with Les Impatients since 2002.
“An art therapist understands the profound reactions we can have while making art, so we help facilitate that in constructive and positive ways,” says the Creative Arts Therapies graduate. “Art can be very powerful but it can be scary sometimes, too.”
