The program Open up to the world and its contest

A picture is worth a thousand voices

This year, our main theme at the Jeune-PROJET Foundation is about living together in a culturally diverse society and we wish to invite students of the whole province to reflect, open his/her horizons on the realities we face today. Cultures, values, multiple visions meet and create new colors, new stories.

Along with the activities which will be offered all year round, we wish to facilitate the exchange of ideas through art, a wonderful tool of expression and dialogue. A picture is really worth a thousand words, a thousand voices, a thousand ideas. We wish to know yours and share it with hundreds of others.

To encourage you to express yourself through visual arts, we invite you to capture what represents for you an inspiring element of multicultural living. Whether it is through a friendly hug, an eloquent expression of someone’s face, the drawing of a symbolic object, an image that deconstruct prejudices, etc., just about any proposal can work because it comes from you, speaks to you and encourages you to open your horizons!

Once your proposal is ready, you can send it by following the instructions detailed below (registration form right here below and the images through wetransfer at

You are entitled to three (3) proposals, thus 3 ideas maximum per person registered.

Open up to the world will promote the winners and their works for the rest of the school year and by that way, will become the program’s theme images for the whole province and via its social networks and website.

Furthermore, the winners will be invited to participate in the Salon Jeunes-PROJET (Jeunes-PROJET Expo) in May, 2018 where more than 300 students from various schools of Quebec will come to present the project they’ve accomplished during the past school year.

So we will wait for you with your ideas and until then, get inspired!
